Providing insight on the Crates’ findings is Mary Catherine Bateson, daughter of groundbreaking anthropologist Margaret Mead. Filmed over the course of five years, the Crates work with people as far away as Siberia and as close to home as Chesapeake Bay to discover the effects of climate change across a variety of landscapes. 

“The Anthropologist” will premiere at DOC NYC on November 13. Watch the exclusive trailer above.
