At the intersection of art and science, Anthropocene makes the case that we are witnessing a critical moment in geological history.

Climate Summit in New York with support from Art House Convergence, a national collation of art house theaters across the US.

Thank You for the Rain I Wed. October 23, 6PM

Several years ago, Kisilu Musya, a Kenyan farmer, started to use his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the damages of climate change. When a violent storm throws him and a Norwegian filmmaker together, we see him transform from a father to community leader to an activist on the global stage. This feature documentary addresses a range of issues including climate justice, urbanization, gender equality, access to water, climate refugees, and adaptation.
