Genius Factory


In 1980, Robert Graham, a 73-year-old eccentric millionaire got the idea to create a Nobel Prize-winning sperm bank. He was labelled a sexist, a racist, an elitist, a eugenicist, a white supremacist and a Nazi. Never the less, the “Genius Factory” ran for 20 years and produced over 200 children. Graham died before he got to see if the experiment worked. In this documentary, we track the children 30 years later, to find out if they’re geniuses, and answer the age-old question of nature vs. nurture, to find out if you’re a product of your genes or your environment.
