Movie Info

Oscar-nominated Swiss filmmaker Christian Frei's (WAR PHOTOGRAPHER) new documentary observes the harsh and dangerous life of woolly mammoth hunters, native Yakuts on the remote New Siberian Islands in the far north of Siberia. Preserved for millenniums by permafrost, the thawing landscape reveals fossil ivory in a gold rush like atmosphere. When a completely preserved mammoth carcass with fur, liquid blood and muscle tissue is discovered, a new, high-stakes scientific and potentially lucrative quest to resurrect the species à la "Jurassic Park" mounts. Worldwide, biologists from the Chinese National GeneBank to Harvard's Medical School are working on reinventing life to make virus-resistant human cells, reanimate extinct species, and build an entire human genome from scratch. GENESIS 2.0 approaches this burgeoning revolution in science with both curiosity and skepticism.

Genesis 2.0 at times may feel like it doesn't quite come together, but nevertheless, it's this same complexity that makes it worth watching; after all, how many times will viewers be able to literately see the Arctic bleed
