Anthropocene Film Screening

The final film in the 2018-2019 season of The Elements: An Annual Environmental Film Series is Anthropocene. Anthropocene is about humanity’s massive re-engineering of the planet, and a new geological epoch coined the Anthropocene, describing a planet shaped more by mankind than by nature. More information and a trailer can be found at https://theanthropocene.org/film/.
Following the film, we welcome you to stay for an informal discussion led by Geologist Christine Witkowski, who is Professor and Program Coordinator of Environmental Science at Middlesex Community College.
As always, the film is open to the public and free of charge.
