Celebrate National Canadian Film Day with free screening

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch screens at the Maury Young Arts Centre on April 17



The Whistler Film Festival is partnering with Reel Canada and Arts Whistler to screen Anthropocene: The Human Epoch as part of National Canadian Film Day on Wednesday, April 17.

Described as a "mesmerizing and disturbing rumination on what drives us as a species, and a call to wake up to the destruction caused by our dominance," the documentary serves as the third film in a series that includes Manufactured Landscapes and Water, by famed photographer Edward Burtynsky and filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier.

The screening takes place at 5 p.m. on April 17 at the Maury Young Arts Centre. Entry is free with donations accepted at the door. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. To reserve a seat visit www.eventbrite.ca/e/national-canadian-film-day-anthropocene-the-human-epoch-tickets-59715451523.
