Library streamer Kanopy, in partnership with Kino Lorber, and subscription documentary service Magellan TV are commemorating today’s 50th anniversary of Earth Day with films detailing the wonders of our planet and the dangers imperiling its future as humanity’s home.
Narrated by Tomb Raider’s Alicia Vikander, this 90-minute film shows Earth’s grandeur with images from six continents and 20 different countries, while chronicling civilization’s role in causing global warming and the need for immediate action. Variety called it one of the best documentaries of 2019.
Kanopy is normally available only to members of participating libraries, but the streamer is making Anthropocene accessible to everyone starting today through April 29. If your library does not participate in Kanopy or you do not have a library card, you can create an account to watch the film. If you are a Kanopy member, streaming the film will not count against your monthly allotment of play credits.
