Genetics and mankind’s growing ability to reshape life is a subject close to the heart of fiction in general and science fiction in particular. The further we probe, the more dangerous the doors we risk opening. Ebon Sheean, award-winning short film director, side-steps with his debute feature, and asks what research does to the researchers themselves. In some cases, physically. His film brags with three charistmatic main actors, Michael Eklund (Divided), Tómas Lemarquis (Nói Albínói) and Karoline Herfurth, whom LIFFF patrons recognize from last year’s vampire hit We Are the Night.

Geoff, driven by the death of his child caused by an unusual disease, comes to Dresden for a project on the regeneration of human cells. But the institute seems to be hiding other projects, where the line of ethics, as well as life, are modifiable. Errors of the Human Body is a cronenbergesque nightmare, more than good versus evil scientists, and a film unafraid to descend into the darkness of the human body.
