The Anthropologist – world premiere featuring Dr. Susan Crate

 

Updated – Mason News coverage: https://www2.gmu.edu/news/393556

Congratulations to Dr. Susan Crate on the world premiere of The Anthropologist, a documentary listed on the Indiewire Top 10 Must See Documentaries at DOC NYC.

At the core of The Anthropologist are the parallel stories of two women: Margaret Mead, who popularized cultural anthropology in America; and Susie Crate, an environmental anthropologist currently studying the impact of climate change. Uniquely revealed from their daughters’ perspectives, Mead and Crate demonstrate a fascination with how societies are forced to negotiate the disruption of their traditional ways of life, whether through encounters with the outside world or the unprecedented change wrought by melting permafrost, receding glaciers and rising tides.
