Storyline

On the remote New Siberian Islands in the Arctic Ocean, hunters are searching for the tusks of extinct mammoths. There is a gold rush fever in the air. The price for white gold has never been so high. The thawing permafrost not only releases precious ivory. The tusk hunters find a surprisingly well-preserved mammoth carcass. Such finds are magnets for high-tech genetic scientists. They want to bring the extinct woolly mammoth back to life à la "Jurassic Park". Resurrecting the mammoth is a first manifestation of the next great technological revolution. Man becomes Creator. Genesis two point zero. A Film about the secrets and mysteries hidden within nature and the fundamental difference in view of creation and the role of man in it.

Juxtaposition from Permafrost to Lab
16 July 2019 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Can a woolly mammoth be resurrected? Various groups in the US, Russia, China, S. Korea are working toward that end - either an elephant/mammoth hybrid or a mammoth itself. We follow Siberian mammoth tusk hunters in the New Siberian Islands as they search for remains, and tusks. Russia exports 30 to 80 tons/year of mammoth ivory mostly to China for carving. The most well preserved mammoth found so far was found in 2013 where actual blood still flowed from a mammoth wound. Cloning is highly possible as both hybrid (zorse - horse + zebra) clones and fully cloned animals (e.g. recently dead pets) have been done since 2005. Engineering life will help all of life, e.g. saving honey bees; adding Vit. A to rice; halting genetic sourced diseases that can disable or kill.
