Astonishment. Pure, lurid, ravishing, genuine astonishment. That is Anthropocene: The Human Epoch.Luke Hicks, Nonfics
We have entered an epoch in which human activity is shaping the planet more than any natural force. Anthropocene bears witness that something's got to give.Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
To say that there are no easy answers to planetary woes is to state the obvious. But the film seeks to reveal rather than lecture, in the hope that our eyes will convince our brains to act before it's too late.Peter Howell, Toronto Star
