Homo Sapiens, species of bipedal primates characterized by dependence upon language and complex tools.
Homo Sapiens (latin: Wise Man) has become the most influential biological species and a geological force on Earth, engendering a new epoch known as the Anthropocene: the age of the New Humans.
20-22 OMEGA is a feature film, nonverbal and nonfiction, exploring a new humanity emerging in the Anthropocene,
an unprecedented age dominated by human presence and activities (aka the Human Enterprise), and defined by accelerated change, unimaginable possibilities and complex uncertainties.
Shot on Kodak B&W film over 5 years across 100 locations.
20-22 OMEGA (111 min) gives exclusive access to popular as well as rarely seen places, spectacular events and fascinating characters as the film gives a profound look at a wide and diverse range of human environments, moments and operations.
Accompanied by an original soundtrack of organ music, choir songs and Inuit throat singing,
this experiential documentary film offers us a unique cinematic symphony of evocative imagery and music, transcending the human language to reveal the new human reality known as Posthumanism.
20-22 OMEGA is a postmodern-take on the Early cinema movement of the Avantgarde documentary genre
known as Pure Cinema, and it has been described as, “Man with a Movie Camera (1929)” meets “2001, a Space Odyssey (1968)”.
