SXSW 2021: GAIA Teaser Trailer

Ahead of its premiere at this year’s SXSW, a new teaser trailer has been released for the trippy looking horror film Gaia, which involves a park ranger who discovers a man and his son living in the forest, but also something much more dire.

The film is directed by Jaco Bouwer and will be premiering online March 16th at SXSW.


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. GAIA is an ecological horror fantasy which engages the burning issues of our time.
