Can you recall the name of this movie?

The name is not an English word-- something like Katsmata, but not that.
It has - if I recall - no words, but scenes, ex of great traffic jams, of things speeding along, of civilizations' follies, something like a world gone mad. It seems very appropriate to me now, and I cannot recall the name.
It would have been made at least 20 years ago - maybe more.
Thanks!

"How Long have we been in the Anthropocene?"

Discussing human effects on the earth; impact of agriculture at different times in different regions.

"Not everyone is sure that today’s industrialized, globalized societies will be around long enough to define a new geological epoch. Perhaps we are just a flash in the pan—an event—rather than a long, enduring epoch.

Others debate the utility of picking a single thin line in Earth’s geological record to mark the start of human impacts in the geological record. Maybe the Anthropocene began at different times in different parts of the world. For example, the first instances of agriculture emerged at different places at different times and resulted in huge impacts on the environment, through land clearing, habitat losses, extinctions, erosion, and carbon emissions, forever changing the global climate."

"We asked over 1,300 archaeologists from around the world to contribute their knowledge on how ancient people used the land in 146 regions spanning all continents except Antarctica from 10,000 years ago right up to 1850. More than 250 responded, representing the largest expert archaeology crowdsourcing project ever undertaken, though some prior projects have worked with amateur contributions."
