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...

This was more of an introduction to scientists with the most cursory touching on their areas of research. I enjoyed it as that, once I realized we were not going to actually get much science other than elucidating what current questions were being pursued. Probably this would be a good intro to high school kids who are considering careers in scientific fields. I thought the concept of having interdiscisciplinary scientists interview one another was great. The scientists chosen are leaders and were quite personable, not arrogant in the least. I would have preferred to have more details about their work, though.
