Genetic Me

Pernille Rose Grønkjær, Denmark, 2014

52 min.DK/Documentary

A humorous, sexy and very human gateway into the rising science of who we are. Using wit and authenticity, the film connects a deeply personal tale with frontier genetic research and provides new perspectives on the eternal question of: "How did I become me?" The film tackles numerous themes for debate and is relevant for panel discussions, scientist talks and audience and student comments. This is the science you thought you would never understand finally made accessible and about to set you on a personal journey into the future.
