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.

This is a fascinating documentary about the mammoth ivory trade and the field of genetic engineering and cloning.
11 January 2020 | by ajzegSee all my reviews

It technically came out in 2018 but there was no way for me to see it until this year. The film follows both genetic scientists and a group of mammoth hunters who look for frozen remains in northern Siberia. This film covers many topics including survival, the resurrection of extinct species and even eugenics. The two sides of the film, the hunters and the scientists, don't always mix well and the film can kinda drag sometimes as a result, but there were so many amazing moments in this movie that excited me more than any blockbuster I saw this year that I don't dare reveal here. It is also very scary and raises many ethical questions. It's like a real-life Jurassic Park. Should we look more into this kind of technology or should we not open Pandora's Box? It makes you think. I recommend checking this one out if you like science or survival stories. I think you'll enjoy it. I sure did, and I can't wait to own a pet mammoth some day!
