Shot entirely by drone in Morocco and Germany, In the Land of Drought 2015/2017 is set in an imaginary post-Anthropocene world and confronts the relationship between humanity and its impact on the world. The camera’s bird’s-eye view observes an army of ‘scientists’ emerging to investigate the archaeological remnants of civilization after humanity has made itself extinct.
