Film focuses on impact of climate change on indigenous communities

8 October 2016

The struggle of indigenous communities in the face of climate change is the theme of The Anthropologist, a movie which was screened recently at the UN Office in Vienna.

The film is told through the perspectives of the daughters of two renowned women anthropologists: the late Margaret Mead, who popularized the discipline in the United States, and Susie Crate, who has conducted research in Siberia.

It also shows the relationship between Ms Crate and her teenage daughter, Katie, who accompanied her to various locations worldwide over a five-year period.

Katharina Goetze asked the film’s co-director Seth Kramer what it was like to work with indigenous communities.

Duration: 4’43”
