Homo Sapiens (beautifully directed by acclaimed documentarian Nikolaus Geyrhalter) is a film about the finiteness and fragility of human existence and the end of the industrial age. Powerful images of empty spaces, ruins, cities increasingly overgrown with vegetation and 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.

Homo Sapiens has screened at festivals around the world, including Berlin, Paris, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires, Zagreb, München, Warsaw, Tel Aviv, Basel, Curitiba and Edinburgh, but has not yet received a UK theatrical release. This will be the first opportunity to see it in London.

Austria, 2016, 94min, directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter
