19.30 - Museo Universidad de Navarra. Screening of Human Nature (Original Version Subtitled in Spanish).
United States, 107 min, 2019. Sandbox Films, News and Guts Films, The Wonder Collaborative.
A breakthrough called CRISPR has given us unprecedented control over the basic building blocks of life. It opens the door to curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere, and designing our own children.
Human Nature is a provocative exploration of CRISPR’s far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it, the families it’s affecting, and the bioengineers who are testing its limits.
How will this new power change our relationship with nature? What will it mean for human evolution? To begin to answer these questions we must look back billions of years and peer into an uncertain future.

19.30 - Museo Universidad de Navarra. Screening of The Last Artifact (Original Version Subtitled in Spanish).
United States, 57 min, 2019. Montana PBS, Montana State University.
TThe Last Artifact documents the work going on behind the scenes to modernize the measurement system upon which all of modern life depends. Since the French Revolution, the way we weigh the world has been based on a small metallic cylinder about the diameter of golf ball, located just outside of Paris inside a high-tech vault.
Encased within three vacuum-sealed bell jars, it may not look like much, but it is one of the most important objects on the planet. It affects every aspect of our lives from the moment we are born, to the food we eat, the cars we drive, and the medicines we take. This object has helped send men to the moon, and satellites into space. It is an object unlike any other, the last of its kind. It is a literal constant in an ever-changing world, and the weight by which all others are measured.
In 2018, this all changed. This remarkable object was resigned to history and redefined. The Last Artifact tells the story about how this artifact came to be, how it came to pass, and what the future holds. This is the story of The Last Artifact.

19.30 - Museo Universidad de Navarra. Screening of The Serengeti Rules (Original Version Subtitled in Spanish). United States, 84 min, 2018. HHMI Tangled Bank Studios, Passion Planet.
Passion Planet and HHMI Tangled Bank Studios present one of the most important, but untold science stories of our time-a tale with profound implications for the fate of life on our planet.
Beginning in the 1960s, a small band of young scientists headed out into the wilderness, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works. Immersed in some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth-from the majestic Serengeti to the Amazon jungle; from the Arctic Ocean to Pacific tide pools-they discovered a single set of rules that govern all life. Now in the twilight of their eminent careers, these five unsung heroes of modern ecology-Bob Paine, Jim Estes, Mary Power, Tony Sinclair, and John Terborgh-share the stories of their adventures, and how their pioneering work flipped our view of nature on its head. Across the globe, they discovered that among the millions of species on our planet, some are far more important than others. They called these species "keystones," because they hold the natural world together.
Based on the book by Sean B. Carroll, The Serengeti Rules will forever change the way we see nature.
