The Contenders

We are in awe after watching Lucy Walker's animated documentary "The Contenders" about the Foldit group involved in mapping the structure of the Mason Pfizer Monkey Virus. Brilliantly done!

This is probably one of the most inspirational cartoons I have ever seen.

I'd like to clarify that

I'd like to clarify that Renton is not a member of Contenders, nor was he involved in the discovery of MPMV. That impression might be, incorrectly, cast.
