Sustainability Film Screening

The showing of “Anthropocene” will be held virtually at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 16. This screening will kick-off the 5th Annual ECU Sustainability Film and Discussion Series so make some popcorn, get comfy at home, and join us!

The film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing 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.  From concrete seawalls in China that now cover 60% of the mainland coast, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany, to psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains, to metal festivals in the closed city of Norilsk, to the devastated Great Barrier Reef in Australia and surreal lithium evaporation ponds in the Atacama desert, the filmmakers have traversed the globe using high end production values and state of the art camera techniques to document evidence and experience of human planetary domination.

Below is the link to join the Webex meeting then we will provide a link to watch the movie and please rejoin the meeting after viewing the film for a discussion led by Dr. Sid Mitra, Integrated Coastal Sciences Ph.D. Program Director and Associate Professor in the ECU Department of Geological Sciences.
