Join journalist and researcher Kale Brock on a scientific quest to discover whether the “optimal microbiome” does indeed exist. Filmmakers follow him as he travels from Australia to Namibia to live with The San, ancient hunter-gatherers who have lived off the land for centuries. During the excursion, Brock monitors his microbiome closely and notes how it changes with his new surroundings. He also takes microbiome samples of The San to examine any significant differences in overall gut health - specifically, the microbiota present across cultures.
Foremost gastroenterologist Professor Thomas Borody, molecular geneticist Dr. Margie Smith, immunology researcher and expert Professor Mimi Tang, naturopath and chiropractor Dr. Damian Kristof, and others weigh in on the human microbiome. The Gut Movie provides compelling research of the gut microbiome and its impact, both on human health and the future of medicine.
