The Real Superhumans and the Quest for the Future Fantastic

The Real Superhumans and the Quest for the Future Fantastic is a two hour long special from the Discovery Channel revealing the amazing stories of people with extraordinary super powers.  But just who are these superhumans?

The film follows four people with what are described as real life superhuman abilities, a geneticist who created the first chimera of two very different species of rodents, and a scientist on a mission to become immortal.

The documentary was showcased at the World Congress of Science Producers in New York in November 2008, and won the ‘Best Canadian Programme Award’ at Banff that same year.
