Efter människan
(After Man, 2020)

Efter människan (After Man, 2021) is one complete scene from Syndafloden (The Deluge, 2021) made into a separate short film. Like the whole Syndaloden film, Efter människan is based on prophecies and riddles in Leonardo da Vinci's (1452–1517) work diaries. Inspired by those visions from 500 years ago, Efter människan shows a picture of the kind future in which the body and its sacredness has been eradicated in favour of a landscape where drones and mammoths will replace humanity. Tragedy and jubilation ensues under the smoke and flames of the burning Notre Dame of Paris.
