For the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, we’re teaming up with KimStim to bring you EARTH, a new film from Nikolaus Geyrhalter. Depicting seven locations where humans have radically transformed the landscape on a massive scale, EARTH is a stunning testament to our power over the natural world and our capacity to strip that world of all that is human and hospitable. The film weaves together observational footage of machines in operation with frank conversations with the workers that run them.
EARTH is available from KimStim through the Vimeo on Demand platform. Tickets are $12 per household, and you’ll have 72 hours to watch the movie after you purchase your ticket. After you purchase your ticket, you’ll be able to stream the film on supported browsers or through the Vimeo app on your device. Upstate will receive 50% of the proceeds from each ticket, helping us stay afloat during the pandemic.
“A director who does his own camerawork and has a keen eye for arresting imagery, Geyrhalter possesses an unmistakable visual style. He prefers, as do such celebrated German still photographers as Thomas Struth and Andreas Gursky, to take a step back and utilize large-scale images composed at a distance.” – Kenneth Turan, LA Times
