Scenes from the Anthropocene

Scenes from the Anthropocene combines material shot at The Bronx Zoo and The Museum of Natural History, with 3D animated material. On the soundtrack, paleontologist Peter Ward warns of the probability that we are experiencing the beginning of a sixth mass extinction. This work is a lament on anthropogenic climate change, its effects on life on Earth and the human urge to oblivion.
