A Working Group of international scientists is deciding whether to declare a new geological epoch – the Anthropocene – a planet shaped more by mankind than nature. Wisdom, wit, and charm of the group members tell the story of the Anthropocene and argue whether it’s a tragedy, a comedy, or something more surreal.  The story is enhanced by great photos and video clips.  ANTHROPOCENE proposes a common secular narrative for mankind but leaves viewers to decide how we should write the ending. The film has the blessing of Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen, who coined the term, and is the first feature film about the Anthropocene. It is now our turn to decide–in this decade–how the Anthropocene will continue or end.

Interviewees include Will Steffen, Erle Ellis, Jan Zalasiewicz, Andrew Revkin, John McNeil, Monica Berger Gonzalez, Eric Odada, Davor Vidas
