Special Cleveland Humanities Festival presentation!
Switzerland | 2018 | Christian Frei, Maxim Arbugaev
This provocative and unsettling new documentary focuses on the hunters who harvest valuable tusks of long-dead woolly mammoths from the thawing permafrost of the remote New Siberian Islands. It also spotlights the Russian and Korean biologists who seek to clone this extinct animal, Jurassic Park-style, from the completely preserved carcasses that are occasionally discovered. “A double-stranded helix of a real-life thriller, chilling and unforgettable.” –Hollywood Reporter. Subtitles. DCP. 112 min.
