About the Movie

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.

Customer Reviews

Superbly perceptive!

A wonderful journey to take that leads one to a view of climate change new for most.
However this view is the one which can lead us forward productively.
We need more anthropologists like those shown in this enlightening film.
