All Darat al Funun events have been postponed until further notice.

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is a cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet. The film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth.

At the intersection of art and science, the film witnesses in an experiential and non-didactic sense a critical moment in geological history — bringing a provocative and unforgettable experience of our species’ breadth and impact.
