homo sapiens is a film about the finiteness and fragility of human existence and 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. (nikolaus geyrhalter filmproduktion)
