Smell of the Ground

Olivia Rosa

Shorts Competition Dutch premiere

An adaptation of Sarah Teasdale’s poem “There Will Come Soft Rains.” A subjective artistic vision of the end of the Anthropocene. It depicts a journey across our planet, starting with microscopic close-ups, continuing with shots of wildlife and slowly approaching civilization. Then we see that our world is gone with the last human being and this is not the end but the beginning of a new one.

This short film is part of the programme Shorts: Human Nature.
