Based on Yuval Noah Harari’s international bestseller, Sapiens is an enchanting nature documentary about the human species. It is narrated by Jarmo Heikkinen, whose voice is well-known from the hugely popular Finnish television series Avara luonto (Nature’s wide world). The performance takes a light-hearted, ironic and provocative look at the history of humankind, from the dawn of time to the present – and offers a glimpse into its future.

Seventy thousand years ago, Homo sapiens was an insignificant mammal minding its own business in some corner of Africa. Tens of millennia later, it had established dominion over the entire planet and elevated itself to the level of a god.
