Trailer for Anthropocene – a 90 minute feature documentary by Steve Bradshaw about the decision whether to declare a new geological epoch in the history of the Earth.
We’re living in the Anthropocene. Should we laugh or cry?
In Anthropocene scholars deciding if we live in a new geological epoch describe how we created our artificial planet. Is our story a tragedy, a comedy… or something more surreal?
And how should we write the next – and maybe final – chapter?
Made with the blessing of Paul Crutzen, who popularized the term, the film is based on testimony from the experts making the decision. Is the story of the Anthropocene a comedy, a tragedy or something more surreal?
