A spectacularly cinematic meditation on the way human activity has reshaped the earth.
The film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group, who argue that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. This stunning film witnesses a critical moment in geological history, and lays bare the gashes, wounds and irreparable marks of industrialisation and extraction.
Screening as part of a short season focusing on climate change and the future of the planet, to coincide with COP26. Other films in the season include Ainbo: Spirit of the Amazon, WALL-E and Escape From Extinction.
Running time: 1h47, including ads and trailers.
Please be aware that no-one under the age of 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Unaccompanied children may be required to show photographic I.D. (e.g. a Young Scot card) to gain entry to the cinema.
Following the change in COVID guidance there are no longer distancing measures in place in the cinema screens, but face coverings must be worn unless you're eating or drinking, and we're requesting that customers take their own rubbish with them at the end of the film and put it in the bins provided. Cinemas will be thoroughly cleaned between each screening, and there is hand sanitiser available throughout the building.
