Description The story of a storytelling species.

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.
