Eye-to-Eye introduction by Wladimir Kaminer, author, Berlin

The permafrost on the New Siberian Islands melts rapidly. The faster, the more frequently Russian collectors find mammoth tusks, and sometimes even flash-frozen genetic material. The  filmmakers document the connections between collectors’ arduous journeys in search of ivory in the Siberian wilderness, and the hyper-real world of gene labs in the USA and South Korea, where new life is created from primeval cells. This documentary comes across like a real-life-thriller.
