Book cinema tickets for Homo Sapiens

Homo Sapiens (beautifully directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter, who made Our Daily Bread) 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, which featured at EIFF 2016, is an ode to humanity as seen from a possible future scenario.

Presented by Misc. Films, a UK-based programming collective dedicated to showcasing unreleased and under-screened films.
