Bringing together ancient spiritual knowledge and cutting-edge science, !AITSA is a transcendental film about humans in the Great Karoo desert of South Africa seeking meaning in the infinite darkness surrounding us all. The film details how the wounds of the recent colonial past remain etched into the land. Like history, the film does not have a linear progression. A lot depends on perspective !AITSA claims, switching between the ultra-near and the galactic to explore the vastness of what it means to be human.
