Description

Part of All Monsters Attack! 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 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 which engages the burning issues of our time.

“A thought-provoking and disturbing experience.” Sheila O’Malley, RogerEbert.com

“As a feat of carefully imagined, economically realized world-building… Gaia compels to the end, making the most of the natural resources at its disposal while constructing its own dreamy, tactile visions.” Guy Lodge, Variety
