The Naro joins art theaters around the country for the premiere of Anthropocene in recognition of the U.N. Climate Action Summit. The acclaimed filmmaking team behind Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013) along with art photographer Edward Burtynsky (his photo exhibition Water was showcased in 2016 at Chrysler Museum) have travelled the globe to document the lasting impact industrial technology has made on reshaping the earth’s landscape. It’s a stunning sensory experience and cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet. Narrated by Alicia Vikander. (87 mins)
