The Most Unknown

THE MOST UNKNOWN’s unique and intelligent structure brings together nine scientists in nine different disciplines to explain, in simple terms, what they do and what questions they seek answers to. The results are fascinating.

Dark matter, the deep sea and extraterrestrial life are just some of the phenomena we find most difficult to observe and understand. This film takes us to a place where scientists who speak from vastly different disciplines can actually speak a common language and important questions transcend a single laboratory.

THE MOST UNKNOWN is an epic documentary film told with humor and the thrill of discovery that pushes 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: How did life begin? What is time? What is consciousness? How much do we really know?

Directed by Emmy Award-nominated and Peabody Award-winning documentarian Ian Cheney (“The Search for General Tso,” “The City Dark”) and advised by renowned filmmaker Werner Herzog (“Grizzly Man,” “Encounters at the End of the World”). Created in partnership with Science Sandbox, an initiative of the Simons Foundation
