The title of this one will probably be enough to draw viewers in. But in case you want further explanation, "Raël: The Alien Prophet" examines a controversial French cult. Founded by Claude Vorilhon in the 1970s, the Raëlian movement became convinced that cloning humans was the way to immortality — and they claim to have successfully done it in the early 2000s.
