ABOUT THE FILM
The next tech revolution isn’t digital – it’s biological. A breakthrough called CRISPR – essentially “a word processor for DNA” – provides precise control over the basic building blocks of life, opening the door to curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere and forever changing the world as we know it. This provocative, wide-ranging investigation reaches out to the scientists and bio-engineers designing the future – and the people who could benefit from this new technology – as they push past the boundaries of what it means to be human. This compelling work of science journalism won the Audience Award at the Czech Republic’s Academia Film Olomouc.
