World Documentary Special Jury Award

On the remote New Siberian Islands in the Arctic Ocean, hunters search for tusks of extinct mammoths now being exposed by the fast-melting permafrost. When they discover a well-preserved wooly mammoth carcass, scientists and geneticists worldwide begin to map the genome and to resurrect the extinct beast. It may well turn our world upside down. Werner Herzog meets Jurassic Park in this real-life thriller that explores humanity’s reckless quest for biological mastery. (112 mins)

“A fascinating and somewhat frightening documentary set in the fast-forward arena of synthetic biology.” – Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times

“The woolly mammoth tusk is just the tip of the iceberg in this haunting excavation.” – Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
