SYNOPSIS

Genesis 2.0 is a double-stranded helix of a real-life thriller, chilling and unforgettable. An inquiry into the brave new world of ‘synthetic biology’” Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

Mammoth tusks are appearing out of the melting Siberian permafrost. Due to the rapid development of technology the notion of successfully cloning an extinct Woolly Mammoth has become emblematic of the wild possibilities of genetic technology. The discovery of a largely intact Mammoth corpse may yield viable genetic material. Genesis 2.0 explores these scientific possibilities, its implications for the world and raises questions about our ethical responsibilities.
