This stunning follow-up to Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark offers a cinematic meditation on the way human activity has reshaped the Earth, documenting our massive reengineering of the planet’s surface in astonishing scale and perspective. Spanning numerous countries, Anthropocene lays bare the gashes, wounds and irreparable marks of industrialisation and extraction, revealing how our mania for conquest has created a global epidemic.
