The Anthropocene era is marked by the irreversible imprint of humans on the planet’s ecosystem. Can humankind contain the negative impact of industrial development? The films in the Anthropocene section foreground the commitment of individuals trying to offset, if not reverse, some of the damages. They study the migration of plastic waste across continents (The North Drift), strive to save endangered species affected by air pollution (All that Breathes), and preserve the rainforests and the unique lifestyle of indigenous communities (The Territory). They attempt to reverse bureaucratic decision-making affecting nomadic northern communities (Radji), secure the annual migration of polar bears from photography tourism (Nuisance Bear), and highlight movements expressing concern with global climate change and calling for action, while often provoking multiple controversies (Rebellion). This selection of films intends to inspire the audience to contribute to a reflexive, collaborative, and global action plan.
