At the core of The Anthropologist are the parallel stories of two women: Margaret Mead, who popularized cultural anthropology around the world; 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.
Directors: Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, Jeremy Newberger
