anthropocene Trailer

The experimental film anthropocene investigates the effects of global industrial capitalism. The international port city of Hamburg serves as an example of mass consumption, environmental pollution, gentrification and exploitation. Through the sequential animation of satellite images of the city, the extent of human interference in natural ecosystems is radically depicted. Repeated sequences in image and sound symbolize the unstoppability of the global machinery as well as the loss of all individuality in mass production.
