Dir. Nikolaus Geyrhalter / 2019 / 115 min.

While we can't currently gather in person, you can see new documentary films via our Virtual Cinema and support DCTV.

    "Despite its apocalyptic visions, it feels curiously optimistic because Geyrhalter hasn’t given up on us.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

In honor of Earth Day's 50th Anniversary, join us to see this critically acclaimed, award-winning documentary.

Earth was filmed at seven locations where humans are transforming the planet on a grand scale: Entire mountains being moved in California, a tunnel being sliced through rock at the Brenner Pass, an open-cast mine in Hungary, the world-famous Carrara marble quarry in Italy, a copper mine in Spain, the salt mine used to store radioactive waste in Wolfenbüttel and a Northern Canadian tar sands site where the destruction of indigenous lands threatens local communities. Geyrhalter contrasts these large scale projects with interviews with the individuals helping to realize them to highlight our fraught struggles for and against the planet.

This online rental is $12 for a 72-hour viewing period. 50% of the proceeds benefit DCTV. Thank you!
