Press/ Media Details: Co-presented with the American Museum of Natural History, THE ANTHROPOLOGIST illuminates how civilizations cope with change–both environmental and societal–by focusing on the anthropologists devoted to this study. Margaret Mead, one of the best-known cultural anthropologists of all time, was fascinated by how remote, primitive cultures adapted to the encroaching modern world. Today, another renowned environmental anthropologist, Susie Crate, studies how worldwide communities are coping with climate change: melting permafrost, receding glaciers, and rising tides. THE ANTHROPOLOGIST poses the question: When people can’t stop the world from changing, how do they change themselves? Delightful commentary by Mead’s daughter, Mary Catherine Bateson, a cultural anthropologist in her own right, and Crate’s teenage daughter, Katie Yegorov-Crate, interwoven with stories of their mothers’ research and discoveries, enlivens the film.
