The premiere of the long awaited and stunning documentary investigating the human microbiome.
In The Gut Movie, we follow the journey of journalist & researcher Kale Brock as, in the quest to discover whether the 'optimal microbiome' does indeed exist, he travels from Australia to Namibia to live with The San, an ancient hunter-gatherer people living traditionally from the land. During the excursion Brock monitors his own microbiome and how it changes in conjunction with the new surroundings, and takes microbiome samples of The San to gauge the significant differences in microbiota present across cultures.
With expert commentary by leading gastroenterologist Professor Thomas Borody, molecular geneticist Dr Margie Smith, immunology researcher and expert Professor Mimi Tang and naturopath and chiropractor Dr Damian Kristof, The Gut Movie provides an insightful yet entertaining look at the explosive research of the gut & its impact on human health.
Each event will be followed by a Q&A with the director (Kale Brock) and a star of the film or gut health practitioner, depending on the location.
"The future of medicine may lie somewhere completely unexpected, somewhere only few have dared to look so far, somewhere so farfetched and bizarre that only now in the modern world are we beginning to investigate it... poop. Yes, in our poop."
