the-anthropologist-image-final Play Button

Katie, a thirteen-year-old girl from Fairfax, Virginia, is carted around the globe by her mother, noted environmental anthropologist Susie Crate, as she studies the effects of climate change on centuries-old indigenous communities. Filmed over the course of five years, The Anthropologist tells the parallel stories of Susie and famed anthropologist Margaret Mead. Mead’s daughter, now an anthropologist in her own right, provides insight into Susie and Katie’s travels, tying Mead’s influential work to present-day struggles to confront change within communities.
