Can you hack a human body and extend life? What is the limit of experimentation with the body? What drives bio punks in their dangerous research? In her film Citizen Bio, Trish Dolman, a Canadian political documentary filmmaker, dives deep into the underground world of radical medicine. Her characters are biohackers who lift the curtain and let the camera into a fringe world of unofficial experiments to extend human life, and talk about their experience with the controversial entrepreneur Aaron Traywick before his mysterious death. 


Trish Dolman and Anhelina Kariakina, journalist and documentary filmmaker will discuss this documentary exploration of controversial topics and subcultures, and talk about immersion in fringe worlds and secret stories
