RIDM 2016: Homo Sapiens

 

for Cinetalk.net

It is RIDM 2016 last stand this weekend and after witnessing the state of the world with plenty of amazing documentaries that left us speechless, Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s Homo Sapien may come as a blessing.

Homo Sapien is made of static shots with no commentary and it is free of any Homo Sapien presence. Filmed all over the globe, and showing the imprint of men over the lands, it explores (often gigantic) abandoned ruins of human structures. We are convey through a series of beautifully shot images into a meditative world of poetic nature and abandoned. This is no Baraka or Koyaanisqatsi as there is no musical commentary  (but some fine sound design), yet it shares the no plot characteristic of these renown works and their formal qualities.
