Anthropocene

Description

On the banks of the Yamuna river, or in the shade of the Valbona valley, or among the rubble of a post-apocalyptic world, humanity’s relation with nature appears as undeniable and wholly inseparable. These five shorts expose the concrete consequences of our interactions with the environment, and speculate about potential outcomes they may bring. While these films confront and expose our indifference and complicity in the worsening state of the planet, they all convey a hopeful message for the future: everything will run smoothly as long as everybody plays their part.
