In Theatres: THE ANTHROPOLOGIST

anthropologistComing to theatres tomorrow, Friday, November 11: THE ANTHROPOLOGIST

Seth Kramer, Daniel A Miller, and Jeremy Newberger’s look at climate change through cultural anthropology had its world premiere at DOC NYC last year. Screenings followed at Cleveland, Dallas, RiverRun, Minneapolis, IFF Boston, Cucalorus, and San Francisco Green, among other fests.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
At the core of Kramer, Miller, and Newberger’s film are the parallel stories of two women: Margaret Mead, who popularized cultural anthropology in America; and Susie Crate, an environmental anthropologist currently studying the impact of climate change. Uniquely revealed from their daughters’ perspectives, Mead and Crate demonstrate a fascination with how societies are forced to negotiate the disruption of their traditional ways of life, whether through encounters with the outside world or the unprecedented change wrought by melting permafrost, receding glaciers, and rising tides.
