Cineclub begins 2017 with a special programme of documentary and feature films which explore themes of technological and medical advances, globalisation and which pose important questions about our future. The first film in this programme is Golden Genes.
Saving the DNA of all life on Earth will be one of the greatest international research projects of the coming decades. Golden Genes – part nature film, part political documentary – demonstrates the extent to which biodiversity research is not only challenging human society but also our very conception of humankind.
We invite you to a Q&A and wine reception with director Wolfgang Konrad following the screening.
Austria, 2016, 90 mins, English subtitles, directed by Ursula Hansbauer, Wolfgang Konrad, Clemens Stachel
