25th Arizona International Film Festival- Tucson Arizona 2016

opens the 25th Arizona International Film Festival
Thursday, April 14 at 7:30 p.m.
The Screening Room, 127 East Congress

The Anthropologist tells the parallel stories of Margaret Mead, who popularized cultural anthropology around the world, and Susie Crate, an environmental anthropologist currently studying the impact of climate change.

Mead and Crate’s daughters are the film’s storytellers. Mead’s daughter is Mary Catherine Bateson, a 76-year-old cultural anthropologist. Crate’s daughter is Katie Yegorov-Crate, a teenager who begrudgingly travels with her mother. Shot over the course of five years, Katie ages from 13 to 18.
The film weaves together accounts of humanity’s struggle with change, whether environmental, societal, or individual. Susie and Katie travel to Siberia, the South Pacific, the Andes, and the Virginia coast of the Chesapeake Bay. As a result of global warming, the communities they visit are forced to rethink how they live and whether it makes sense to move.
The Anthropologist was invited to screen at the UN Climate Change Conference
 COP21 in Paris on December 7, 2015, followed by a debate at UNESCO
Headquarters and is now showing at film festivals around the world.
Co-director Seth Kramer will introduce the film and be available for a Q&A session after the screening. The Anthropologist is a follow-up to Kramer’s The Linguists,which screened at the 2008 Arizona International Film Festival, aired on PBS, and was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2010.

Admission to the screening is $8.
