HOMO SAPIENS

Dir: Nikolaus Geyrhalter
Austria / 2016 / 94mins

★★★★★ "... the most extraordinary documentary I have seen in years." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Homo Sapiens, the latest film from multi award winning director, Nikolaus Geyrhalter (Over the Years, Abendland, Our Daily Bread) explores the finiteness and fragility of human existence, the end of the industrial age, and what it means to be a human being.

What will remain of our lives after we’re gone?

Empty spaces, ruins, cities increasingly overgrown with vegetation, crumbling asphalt: the areas we currently inhabit, though humanity has disappeared. Now abandoned and decaying, gradually reclaimed by nature after being taken from it so long ago.

Homo Sapiens is an ode to humanity as seen from a possible future scenario.
