Glas and Gorm’ is a speculative ­fiction puppet film by M E Smit-Dicks and Lillian Ross­-Millard with music composition by Josh Thorpe, portraying a post­human, post­apocalyptic Scotland which has become overgrown with flora. Humans have disappeared and the natural world has taken over, growing through and around the infrastructure left behind. Out of the decay brought on by the anthropocene, a new green civilisation has emerged.
