Description The biggest tech revolution of the 21st Century isn't digital, it's biological. A breakthrough called CRISPR has given us unprecedented control over the basic building blocks of life. It opens the door to curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere, and designing our own children. Human Nature is a provocative exploration of CRISPR's far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it, the families its affecting, and the bio-engineers who are testing its limits. How will this new power change our relationship with nature? What will it mean for human evolution? To begin to answer these questions we must look back billions of years and peer into an uncertain future.

I watched this documentary at my own risk after an impulse and I was very grateful for that. I cannot find any one flaw in this film. For one thing I could understand why a majority of people might not like it or the parts I did not like. As a biological biologist who works in and around human activity, I am really not familiar with much of the "bio-porn" movie stuff which these folks describe. The other thing that caught my attention was the passion and knowledge about their field. The documentary starts out with them showing their research, which is pretty interesting. In their research the researchers had to physically move into places, hunt for animals and do field work on "homesteading". Then they talk about some of the animals and how they were able to raise them and put them out in the wild. For example, one guy who was also a biologist did a "pink pigeon coop" experiment. He was able to raise an estimated 70-80 of them. Another guy did the same experiment with an estimated 1-2 of them. Another guy raised a ground squirrel which he got from a drugstore in Louisiana. That guy was able to raise an estimated 30 of them. A guy was able to get a black squirrel from Louisiana. Then there is a guy who raises an estimated 2 or 3 chickens which he got from the farmer's market. He put the chicks out in the wild and raised them in a barn. I was pretty impressed with this guy because it took a lot of work to raise them from a hatchling to a full fledged chicken. So, in conclusion, there is a lot of work that goes into raising chickens, I would not be surprised if people don't like this documentary because they would not like the studies but that is the beauty of this film. I would definitely recommend watching this documentary.

Who among us does not know someone or more than one friend who have known someone in the mental health field or are a parent, a parent in a mental health field, or simply someone who has an interest in it? The stigma is that mental health is a mystery, something we should not be confronting and not only as a society but also as individuals. The story of the film is about a psychologist who discovers her husband is suffering from depression. She is upset by this discovery and decides to seek help. Through a mixture of discussion with her partner and in private sessions with him, she discovers that his problems are not due to his bipolar or depression but are rooted in his father. Through researching mental health and the child in a mental health facility, she discovers that mental health facilities are not the worst of the worst but often do not have the capacity to help those people. She also learns that some parents can handle their children with psychiatric problems and then they are given access to a facility. Through her experience of interacting with other parents she finds that the institution or the institution doing the best for their patients is often not the best for their own children. She also discovers that the institution that provides the best to their patients is often the institution that is less busy. She sees in this movie a psychiatrist who doesn't want to leave her patients alone and who is unresponsive to some of their complaints and who has to go out of her way to attend her patients and become involved. Through this process of learning about herself she learns that mental health care should not be seen as a problem but as a choice. She finds her own way of doing it. This film is a brave story that hopefully can inspire all of us to seek out information about mental health and see it for what it is, a choice. Thank you to the director, producers and all of the people who participated in the making of this film.

A well-made documentary about the personality of the internet. What is it about? Most people know that its use in the advertising, the so-called "free economy" of the world, for obtaining an income. It could be used as a way to facilitate social integration, where people can communicate with each other without having to travel between countries, where they could have more interaction with strangers. How about the social networking sites? Are they better than people's lives and actions in the real world? These are probably the questions that might be asked during the course of the film. It also touches on the problem of trolls and how to control them. But it also touches on what is not becoming a human, an animal or a machine, that is being the modern day equivalent of "natural selection" in the modern day industrial world. This is a brilliant, short film that will captivate people. It touches on the issue of using the internet for political actions, how to control the ways that we can do so and how to respect the people who use the internet. It takes the perspective that we should not demonize or neglect the internet, the modern day "digital jungle" and all that it can do, it is just an extension of our lives, an extension of the "economy" of the world. A must see for people who are concerned with the human nature, for all the people who are concerned about the real world around them. It is not all good, it is not all bad, but it is important, worthwhile and relevant.
