“Human Nature” to Premiere at SXSW 2019

The Science Sandbox–supported film selected to appear in the festival’s Documentary Spotlight section

“Human Nature,” a documentary film that tells the origins story of a scientific breakthrough called CRISPR, will have its world premiere at South by Southwest (SXSW) in March 2019.

From director Adam Bolt, the co-writer and editor of the Oscar-winning film “Inside Job,” “Human Nature” is a deep dive into gene editing and the future of what it means to be human. The film is produced by the Wonder Collaborative, in association with Science Sandbox and Dan Rather’s News & Guts.

As mentioned on the film’s website, the feature-length documentary is a “provocative exploration of CRISPR’s far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it, the families it’s affecting, and the bioengineers who are testing its limits.”

SXSW is an annual festival and conference, held in Austin, Texas, that brings together musicians, artists, filmmakers, scientists and more.
