On the remote New Siberian Islands in the Arctic Ocean, hunters are searching for the tusks of extinct mammoths.
There is a gold rush fever in the air. The price for white gold has never been so high.
The thawing permafrost not only releases precious ivory. The tusk hunters find a surprisingly well-preserved mammoth carcass. Such finds are magnets for high-tech genetic scientists.
They want to bring the extinct woolly mammoth back to life à la “Jurassic Park.” Resurrecting the mammoth is a first manifestation of the next great technological revolution. Man becomes Creator. Genesis two point zero.
A film about the secrets and mysteries hidden within nature and the fundamental difference in view of creation and the role of man in it.
"The footage is beautifully shot ... The New Siberian Islands, with their stark landscapes and almost unearthly rock formations, are a character unto themselves."
"rewarding for the incredible, historic events captured within."
"The woolly mammoth tusk is just the tip of the iceberg in this haunting excavation."
