Originally produced by KimStim in 2016.
This New York Times Critics' Pick is an ode to humanity as seen from a possible future scenario. 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. Nominated for Best Feature Documentary - **Edinburgh International Film Festival** "*Geyrhalter has created one of the most powerful cinematic wake up calls since Charlton Heston stood and cried out at the Statue of Liberty. Here, there are not even apes.*" - Jennie Kermode, **Eye for Film** "*For its sheer visual exaltation, this is the most extraordinary documentary I have seen in years*." - Peter Bradshaw, **The Guardian**
