Unnatural Selection

Documentary series “Unnatural Selection” explores new developments in the science of gene editing that could forever change the future of mankind. From disease eradication to trait selection and bio-hacking, fierce debate is erupting over the long-term implications of these groundbreaking experiments. Over the course of this four-part limited series, we’ll travel the world and meet scientists, hackers, critics, ethicists, and the creators and beneficiaries of these technologies that defy evolution. These are real events that are happening right now, raising moral, social, and environmental impact questions about where we, as a society, will draw the line.


This provocative and visually arresting series is the result of more than three years of work. The project was initially brought to us by our partners Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau at Reel Peak Films, from creators / directors Joe Egender and Leeor Kaufman. Joe and Leeor realized early on these emerging technologies would reshape the future of humanity much sooner than people realized, but very few people were aware of the massive social, economic, and moral implications these changes will bring with them. The end result is a series that explores a world where the very essence of life can be altered – not only by Harvard geneticists and multi-billion dollar corporations, but also by renegade bio-hackers working out of their garage – and challenges viewers to examine what it actually means to be human.
