This mesmerising and entertaining film reveals the true potential of interdisciplinary collaboration, pushing the boundaries of science storytelling. Nine scientists visit extraordinary places to uncover unexpected answers to some of humanity’s biggest questions. How did life begin? What is time? What is consciousness? How much do we really know? By introducing researchers from diverse backgrounds for the first time, this deeply human trip to the foundations of discovery reminds us that the unanswered questions are the most crucial to pose.

Directed by Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Ian Cheney (The Search for General Tso, The City Dark) and advised by world-renowned filmmaker Werner Herzog (FitzcarraldoAguirre, The Wrath of God, Grizzly Man), The Most Unknown is an ambitious look at a side  of  science never before shown on screen. The film was made possible by a grant from Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to engaging everyone with the process of science.

““Gorgeous.” — The New Yorker

“Mystifying… extols the wonders of science and of all that’s yet to discover.”— Ken Jaworowski / The New York Times
