78 minutes

Studying the impact of climate change on indigenous communities, anthropologist Susie Crate undergoes a five-year journey from the South Pacific to Siberia accompanied by her teenage daughter Katie. As depicted in The Anthropologist (2015), their adventure mirrors that of renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead (1901-1978), who for decades sought to understand how global transformations affected remote cultures. Through the narration of Mead’s daughter, directors Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger present an examination of climate change as witnessed by these unique mother-daughter relationships, which exceed the current and the past.
