THE MOST UNKNOWN’s unique and intelligent structure brings together 9 scientists in 9 different disciplines to explain, in simple terms, what they do and what questions they seek answers to.  And 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?
