Film details


Homo Sapiens, species of bipedal primates characterized by dependence upon language and complex tools, has become the most influential species on Earth, engendering a new epoch known as the Anthropocene: the age of the New Humans. 20-22 OMEGA is a nonverbal nonfiction film exploring the posthumanism in this unprecedented age dominated by human presence and activities and defined by accelerated change and unimaginable possibilities. Shot on Kodak B&W film over 5 years across 100 locations, this film gives exclusive access to popular as well as rarely seen places, spectacular events and fascinating characters. Accompanied by organ music, choir songs and Inuit throat singing, this experiential film takes us on a pure cinematic odyssey transcending the human language to reveal a new human reality.
