Earth Protectors Film – coming out in 2022

About The Film

“I want to take viewers on a journey and inspire them. I want them to realize that each and every one of us can become a positive geologic force. Our daily thoughts and actions affect the planet as a whole, and that is empowering. It means that if mankind chooses to, we can change the future of our planet overnight.”

Anne de Carbuccia

As a leading environmental artist, Anne de Carbuccia has for the last decade artistically portrayed and documented human-caused threats to the planet, including drought, plastic oceans, species extinction and endangered cultures. Her feature-length documentary, Earth Protectors, addresses our need to adapt as a species to the Anthropocene: the new era in which the impact of humans overwhelms natural cycles with fires, floods, pollution, super typhoons and a deadly virus that has paralyzed the world. A burning planet and a silently spreading disease provide incontrovertible evidence for the necessity of systemic change.


On her expeditions around the world creating her art installations, Anne meets a new generation of women and men who are working to save our planet and is inspired by their commitment and their achievements. Her narrative recounts the stories and the diversity of these young protagonists whom she calls “Earth Protectors”.

“Anne’s work opens a portal to the heart of humanity that science on its own has been unable to forge. It carries a message that complements and amplifies scientific data - and I am convinced that science alone cannot create the change that the planet deserves and so urgently needs.”

 Dr. Julie Pullen, Earth Scientist
