This film takes us to Earth in a distant future. It offers glimpses into how life forms adapt to a new planetary ecology.
Earth has been home to humanity for around two hundred thousand years – a fraction of the geological time scale. Yet in this short slice of habitation, our imprint has been so vast, that some now describe the littered layer of human generated structures and systems as the ‘technosphere’. The film posits an expanded idea of home, of care and connection from micro to macro, to shine light on a more integrated, nuanced notion of life and living. Playing with the tone and structure of a nature documentary, this speculative film takes us into a desert-like world, soft and colourful. Species exploit a degrading layer of the planet’s crust by digging, foraging, and designing new homes. What is toxic for one species is a perfect habitat for another. Among the remnants of the Anthropocene, life moves.
