On the Road With Homo Sapiens
Magnus Sjöström, Sweden, 2008, color, video, 30'
We take a closer look on the human animal. How does our species resemble and differ from other species, how it came to be that our uniquely human characteristics evolved? Where is evolution bringing us nowadays? More sophisticated methods of analysis, new fossils finds and the sequenced genetic codes of humans and chimpanzees, are powerful weapons in the arsenal for scientists tracing out the remarkable voyage of Homo Sapiens. In the possible future, parents may have access to genetic information and methods permitting them to subtract or add characteristics to their children.
