THE ANTHROPOLOGIST examines climate change like no other film before. The fate of the planet is considered from the perspective of American teenager Katie Crate. Over the course of five years, she travels alongside her mother Susie, an anthropologist studying the impact of climate change on indigenous communities. Their journey parallels that of renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead, who for decades sought to understand how global change affects remote cultures.
Hailed as “utterly winning” by the LA Times and “stealthily insightful” by the NY Times, THE ANTHROPOLOGIST has been selected by more than 50 film festivals and won numerous awards. It screened at the COP21 UN Climate Change Conference and on World Anthropology Day on campuses everywhere.
