Storyline

The Most Unknown is an epic documentary film that sends nine scientists to extraordinary parts of the world 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, then dropping them into new, immersive field work they previously hadn't tackled, the film reveals the true potential of interdisciplinary collaboration, pushing the boundaries of how science storytelling is approached. What emerges is a deeply human trip to the foundations of discovery and a powerful reminder that the unanswered questions are the most crucial ones 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 (Fitzcarraldo, Aguirre, The Wrath of God, Grizzly Man), The Most Unknown is an ambitious look at a side of science...

An excellent and unique science documentary
17 August 2018 | by AdamScience1See all my reviews

The Most Unknown is a great documentary that focuses on 9 scientists and their research, which covers a wide variety of scientific topics, including dark matter, the neuroscience of consciousness, microbiology in extreme conditions, and many others. Each scientist provides a reasonably accessible explanation of their research interests. However, you definitely have to be competely concentrating to take in all the complex information.
