“Stunning,” “Ravishing, “Sobering”…  the usual positive-film-review adjectives 
have been deployed about “Anthropocene: The Human Epoch,” but the movie is even 
better and more important than that.  Its combination of intimate detail and 
massive scale—in the same imagery—conveys viscerally the full scope of human 
activity as a planetary force.

The Long Now Foundation has been involved with this project from its start four 
years ago, and so we are proud to be part of its launch.  Following the 
premiere showing at the Castro on September 29, I’ll be on the stage for Q & A 
with the filmmakers--- Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, and our old 
friend Edward Burtynsky.
