A haunting story of hunters of mammoth remains in remote Siberia and unnerving cloning technology


On desolate islands in the Arctic Ocean, hunters search for the tusks of extinct mammoths. The thawing permafrost not only releases precious ivory but also a surprisingly well-preserved mammoth carcass. Such finds are magnets for genetic scientists who hope one day to use its DNA to resurrect the long-extinct creature. Werner Herzog meets Jurassic Park in this real-life thriller that explores humanity’s reckless courage and the theme of Man vs Nature.
