A film by Jaco Bouwer

South Africa, 2021, 96'

On a surveillance mission in a primordial forest, a park ranger encounters two survivalists following a post-apocalyptic lifestyle. The boy and his philosophical father seem to have their own religion and a mysterious relationship to nature. There are many suspicious aspects to their existence, but when the cabin is attacked by strange, post-human beings one night, she learns that there is a greater threat in this emergent wilderness. “Gaia” is an ecological horror fantasy that engages the burning issues of our time. It is, in the words of the director, «a love letter to nature» and a reminder that humans are not the centre of existence on earth. The feature film debut of Jaco Bower had its world premiere at SXSW.
