Cover of "The Anthropologist" DVD

The Anthropology Club and the Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies will present a free screening of the acclaimed documentary "The Anthropologist" as part of the World Anthropology Day celebrations at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, in 1088 College of Business Building.

"The Anthropologist" examines climate change. The fate of the planet is considered from the perspective of American teenager Katie Crate. Over the course of five years, she travels alongside her mother Susie, an anthropologist studying the effect of climate change on indigenous communities. Their journey parallels that of renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead, who for decades sought to understand how global change affects remote cultures.
