“Anthropocene: The Human Epoch” Documentary Coming January 14 from Kino Lorber

A stunning sensory experience and cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch (DVD: $29.95, Blu-ray: $34.95) is slated for release on January 14 from Kino Lorber. A years-in-the-making feature documentary from the award- winning filmmaking team of Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, and Edward Burtynsky—Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013)—the film is narrated by actress Alicia Vikander. Anthropocene follows the research of the Anthropocene Working Group international body of scientists, who after nearly 10 years of research argue that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century as a result of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. Bonus features include an interview with Edward Norton.
