"An entrancing blend of hard science and ephemeral existentialism." - Michael Fox, KQED

"Stratman’s haunting, iridescent work of science-nonfiction actively decenters the human perspective, narrating the history and the speculative future of the universe with rocks as its protagonists." - Devika Girish, Film Comment

"Astounding." - Robert Koehler, Cinema Scope

An official selection of Sundance and the Berlinale Film Festival, and the opening night film of the 33rd Onion City Experimental Film Festival, Stratman’s LAST THINGS examines evolution and extinction from the perspective of the rocks and minerals that came before humanity and will outlast us. With a stunning array of images, from microscopic forms to vast landscapes, Stratman seeks a picture of evolution without humans at the center. Select showtimes will be presented digitally and listed online. Film Center exclusive.
