Event Details

(USA, 2016, 78 min., color, Bluray, NR) The Anthropologist examines climate change like no other film before. The fate of the planet is considered from the perspective of American teenager Katie Crate. Over the course of five years, she travels alongside her mother Susie, an anthropologist studying the impact of climate change on indigenous communities. Their journey parallels that of renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead, who for decades sought to understand how global change affects remote cultures. – Ironbound Films “At this point no documentarian can possibly have a fresh take on climate change, right? Wrong. “The Anthropologist,” a stealthily insightful film by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller and Jeremy Newberger, improbably mixes that topic with a mother-daughter story to produce a distinctive study of change and human adaptability.” – Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times, 11/10/2016
