The Anthropologist: Looking at Climate Change through a Global Lens weaves together accounts of humanity’s struggle with change, whether environmental, societal, or individual. The film features the parallel stories of two women: Margaret Mead, who popularized cultural anthropology in America, 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 through climate change.
Kramer graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Production. He is a partner in Ironbound Films in upstate New York and has been writing, producing, and directing award-winning documentaries for more than a decade.
