"A film about the finiteness of human existence, about the fragility of our existence, the end of the industrial age and about what it means to be human. What will remain of us? Empty spaces, ruins, overgrown cities, cracked asphalt. Our living spaces, only without us. Surrendered to decay, or rather: to nature, which is slowly reclaiming what we once took from it. HOMO SAPIENS is an ode to being human, viewed from a possible retrospective scenario. Geyrhalter's camera looks boldly from the here and now into a posthuman future: the attack of the present on the end of time."
