Highly recommend this gem of a film
28 April 2016 | by terrenceburbachSee all my reviews

Full disclosure, I believe in climate change, but films on the topic tend to be doom-and-gloom with a side of preachy, overly earnest lecturing. To my surprise, this film is not that at all. Narrated by Kathryn, the daughter of a working anthropologist, and Mary Bateson, the daughter of Margaret Mead, The Anthropologist elegantly weaves together stories from past and present: how scientists piece (and have pieced) together human adaptation in a rapidly changing world. I had no idea what anthropologists do (aside from occasionally channel-surfing past Bones) and how they help us understand challenges we face as a global community. I highly recommend this gem of a film.
