Movie Info

A breakthrough called CRISPR has given us unprecedented control over the basic building blocks of life. It opens the door to curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere, and designing our own children. Human Nature is a provocative exploration of CRISPR's far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it, the families it's affecting, and the bioengineers who are testing its limits. How will this new power change our relationship with nature? What will it mean for human evolution? To begin to answer these questions we must look back billions of years and peer into an uncertain future.

  • The beautifully shot documentary uses a clever combination of simplistic genetic animations and compelling characters to convey the power of this discovery and why it has the potential to change what it means to be human.

  • Human Nature has a lot of science to get out of the way off the top...Stick with it, though.

  • Bolt's documentary explains the science swiftly, then explores the potential and nuance of gene-editing by talking to scientists, doctors and patients at the centre of the breakthrough.

  • The topic is actually surprisingly dull as Human Nature insists on going into detail about how this process works, but things liven up considerably once it gets to all the implications.
