• Anthropocene: The Human Epoch screening
    We have reached an unprecedented moment in planetary history. Humans now affect the Earth and its processes more than all other natural forces combined. Another collaboration from Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky and Nicholas de Pencier, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is an exploration of the complex and indelible human signature on the Earth. The third in a trilogy of films including Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), the film captures the most spectacular evidence of human influence, while taking time to reflect on the deeper meaning of what these profound transformations signify. This screening will be part 2 and the last of these Anthropocene meetups. FYI, the entire exhibit leaves Toronto on Jan 6/19, and hopefully this will inspire some of you to go see the exhibit. It is truly remarkable! ***Please read**** Attendees who have posted they purchased their ticket will be moved from the Wait list to attending. I will close RSVPs the day before Dec 13.
