Mother nature is pissed...
...Ahead of its premiere during the Midnighters section at SXSW, a deeply disturbing trailer for director Jaco Bouwer's Gaia has been released, described as "an ecological horror fantasy which engages the burning issues of our time."
In Gaia, written by Tertius Kapp:
"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."
The film stars Monique Rockman, Carel Nel, Anthony Oseyemi and Alex Van Dyk.
Gaia premieres at SXSW on March 16th at 6:00p CST.
