Anthropocene @ Green Screen Film Series
Anthropocene Are we entering a new geologic era?
A Working Group of international scientists is deciding whether to declare a new geological epoch -- the Anthropocene -- with the Earth shaped more by mankind than nature. Its members tell the story of the Anthropocene and argue whether it's a tragedy, a comedy, or something more surreal. With archival footage, award-winning stills and interviews, the film proposes a common narrative for mankind but leaves viewers to decide how we should write the ending.
Discussion following led by John Zawiskie, Geologist/Paleontologist, Cranbrook Institute of Science.
