About the Film

ANTHROPOCENE is a meditation on how human beings living in contemporary civilization have become cut off from the natural world. In it, I have sought to use ideas from depth psychology and interdisciplinary humanities to unpack the collective biases that serve to alienate us from the natural world and explore a possible path forward.

ANTHROPOCENE was created as part of director Jeremy Sarka's coursework in the Engaged Humanities and Creative Life program at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, CA. It was shot on location in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and Utah.

About the Director

Jeremy Sarka always wanted to tell stories. He studied film in college and produced a well-regarded autobiographical short film. However, after college he opted for a safer career course in the technology industry. Now he has returned to film to recover his love of storytelling.
