On September 27, the U.S. Embassy organized a screening of “The Anthropologist” at the Amerika Haus, followed by a discussion with the American co-director Seth Kramer. “The Anthropologist” is a documentary about the impact of climate change on indigenous communities in Siberia, Kiribati and Peru.
The documentary is directed by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger of Ironbound Films. The film follows environmental anthropologist Susie Crate and her teenage daughter Katie as they visit indigenous communities in Siberia, Kiribati and Peru threatened by climate change. Featuring commentary from Mary Catherine Bateson, daughter of famed anthropologist Margaret Mead, the film explores how human beings adapt to catastrophic change.
