What will survive of us?

This site regularly reveals my addiction to ruin porn - stunning images of abandoned and deteriorating manmade constructions - but those images are usually merely stills. Nikolaus Geyrhalter's film Homo Sapiens goes a step further, capturing such post-apocalyptic and human-free places and buildings aurally as well as visually. The trailer is absolutely incredible, and sufficient to understand why Guardian reviewer Peter Bradshaw might have been moved to describe it as "the most extraordinary documentary I have seen in years".
