Homo sapiens

Directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter
Austria, 2016
  • None
  • No subtitles


The images could be taken from a science fiction film set on planet Earth after it’s become uninhabitable. All these locations carry the traces of erstwhile human existence and bear witness to a civilisation that brought forth architecture, art, ideologies, wars and environmental disasters.

Our take

After showing Niklaus Geyrhalter’s Over the Years last month, we’re thrilled to present his spellbinding Homo Sapiens. A film of perplexing intensity, halfway between documentary and sci-fi, it portrays the state of the world after humanity’s collapse like you’ve never seen before.
