Anthropocene explores through stunning but striking images the ever-increasing and drastic way in which humans are shaping our planet. The film traverses the globe from Kenya, where mounds of illegal elephant tusks are set alight, to colossal mining operations in Russia and Germany, and gaudy evaporation pools in Chile's Atacama Desert. De Pencier's epic cinematography and Alicia Vikander's narration capture the immense power and terrible beauty of our endeavours.
