Homo Sapiens
Nikolaus Geyrhalter

Empty spaces, ruins, cities increasingly overgrown with vegetation, crumbling asphalt: the areas we currently inhabit, though humanity has disappeared. “Austrian director Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s [Our Daily Bread] beautifully bleak documentary Homo Sapiens is a wordless collection of empty, abandoned, man-made structures (churches, malls, schools, military bases, and nuclear reactors, to name a few). The undoctored subjects, from Fukushima to parts of the U.S., Europe, and South America, reveal a stark landscape of decrepitude slowly being reclaimed by nature’s obstinate ability to regenerate itself.“ (Observer)
