"Recent findings in the fossil record have, in some scientific quarters, led to radical ideas on evolution. This program presents an intriguing and highly controversial theory: that human development has been-and continues to be-guided by genetic forces within us, rather than by the pressures of our environment. Following the work of paleontologist Anne Dambricourt Malasse and orthodontist Marie-Josephe Deshayes, the film illustrates curious discoveries about the sphenoid, a small bone in the human skull, and its possible role as a kind of evolutionary regulator. Viewers will be immersed in anthropological and dental research occurring in South Africa, China, France, and Switzerland. Not available in French-speaking Canada. (55 minutes)."
