Watch the award-winning team of Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, and Edward Burtynsky as they follow the Anthropocene Working Group, an international body of scientists who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth.

This FREE viewing is a part of a nationwide screening event on September 25, that coincides with the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York City.
