CRISPR has revolutionized the scientific world, allowing us the ability to change the most basic building blocks of life. With this new technology, scientists can cure numerous diseases, reshape the biosphere, and even design children. Yet advances such as these are not without consequences. With testimonies from the scientists, families, and engineers who interact with CRISPR the most, the film explores its far-reaching possibilities and implications. Director Adam Bolt navigates the complexities of these new advancements and engages his audience with thoughtful questions about the ethics of this unique technology. This captivating documentary asks the anything-but-simple question:just because we can, does that mean we should? Discussion with Mazhar Adli (UVA), moderated by Andrew Rodgers (VAFF)
