Global warming, deforestation, floods and dwindling resources are addressed with an extraordinary breadth of archives in this documentary by Jean-Robert Viallet – based on The Shock of the Anthropocene: The Earth, History and Us by Christophe Bonneuil and Jean-Baptiste Fressoz – that goes back to the beginning of the environmental crisis.

Followed by a Q&A with historian and writer Jean-Baptiste Fressoz (EHESS) and David Edgerton, Professor of the History of Science and Technology (King’s College London).
