The Most Unknown, feature-length science documentary

The Most Unknown is a documentary that sends nine scientists across the world to explore some of humanity's biggest questions. How did life begin? What is time? What is consciousness? How much do we really know? Together, they explore the most unknown areas of each other’s work. Along the way, they return to something fundamental about the nature of discovery: Why are seemingly unanswerable questions worth asking. Directed by Peabody Award-winning documentarian Ian Cheney (King Corn, City Dark), and advised by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog, the film is produced by Motherboard/Vice Media, in association with Science Sandbox. The project has taken us around the world as we filmed with biologists, astronomers, physicists, and neuroscientists. The film premiered at the 2018 Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival, and had its theater release in May.
