Mounds of elephant tusks, mines that look like otherworldly wastelands: awe-inspiring aerial views provide evidence of environmental degradation. The documentary’s stunning images reveal how our mania for conquest has brought profound changes to the Earth, as scientists argue that the Holocene Epoch was overtaken by the Anthropocene Epoch. With narration by Alicia Vikander, the film provides a provocative rumination on the devastating consequences of human domination.
