Human Nature

NEW DOCS

The revolutionary scientific discovery CRISPR makes genome editing a real possibility for curing diseases in the womb. It has the ability to significantly change the world, but few people understand how it works or the possible consequences. Human Nature makes the science understandable while also examining the ethical issues of this breakthrough. Journalists, bioethicists, leading scientists, and families affected by genetic diseases are interviewed to give viewers a full picture of the importance of CRISPR without telling us what to think. Human Nature is an engaging documentary that helps us understand how genetic engineering could affect us all.  NT
