Homo Sapiens, directed by documentarian Nikolaus Geyrhalter (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 is an ode to humanity as seen from a possible future scenario.

94 minutes. No voice-over, no score, no people. Join Misc. Films - a new programming collective dedicated to putting underseen and unreleased films on the big screen - for the London premiere of this acclaimed festival favourite, which despite screening around the world has yet to receive a UK theatrical release. Consider this one for the architecture enthusiasts, the ‘ruin porn’ addicts, the urban explorers and anyone keen to witness the present-day post-apocalypse.
