Overview

For the first time in human history, we have the power to alter our own DNA. The extraordinary technology behind this biological revolution is called CRISPR - and it is on the verge of changing our world forever.

Human Nature explores the origins of CRISPR and follows the story of the scientists and bioengineers who continue to push this technology to its limits. The documentary examines the moral issues surrounding CRISPR and discusses the implications of a future where humans hold the key to the code of life.

Human Nature is produced and directed by Adam Bolt, an award-winning editor, writer, and producer. Before his directorial debut, Bolt achieved global recognition for his acclaimed documentary Inside Job that told the story of the 2008 financial recession.

"We will surely come to the time when man will have the power to alter, specifically and consciously, his very genes. This will be a new event in the universe. The prospect is to me awesome in its potential for deliverance or equally for disaster."

Robert Sinsheimer, biologist
