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...


The Most Unknown (2018) Reviews

  • Outside their fields, still loving science


    The concept is very good, a scientist from one discipline meets one from another and is introduced to their field of study. Passionate about their own field, they see another's and appreciate the host's subject, sometimes in awe, from an outsider's point of view, albeit the outsider is also a scientist. The host scientist then meets another scientist, again in a different discipline and the story continues. The science in most of the disciplines was very interesting and presented in an easy to understand way. All the scientists were likeable too. Very enjoyable.

  • Scientist Don't Know Everything about Everything Said The Non Scientist!


    I personally found it a very interesting and different approach for a Scientific Documentary, I did not see Egos, I saw people who were Experts in their own Fields who were excited to explain their serious knowledge and their work to an Expert in a different Scientific Field and then in turn they then became the 'Novice' in the next Field of Science they had to experience for which they had no indepth understanding/expertise. What I came away from it with was the fact that Science as a whole has to communicate between all Fields of Expertise to better understand so much more, what ever answers they are all ultimately looking for, and to not assume that only their Field has or will give the answer to all the questions they are all possibly individually looking for or aiming to resolve ultimately, there are other aspects to always consider. Said the Non Science Person who failed all her Science O Levels! Just my opnion, I enjoyed it :)

  • Unusual but beautiful documentary style


    This documentary doesn't want to explain difficult projects. It doesn't want to make a point or speed through thousands of facts. It just portraits nine scientist passioned about their work. I found the raw insight in the different labs very fascinating. Something you often don't see in this form in other films. You can feel that Werner Herzog was a advisor for the film, wich is awsome.

  • Loved it!


    I was fascinated by most of what was discussed. The film itself was a little choppy and left me wanting to understand more. The concept was delightful. I enjoyed watching them interact with each other and compare schools of thought. It was a little over my head at times so I tried to glean as much as I could. Very interesting stuff! Not perfect but an excellent attempt to give the average Joe a thirst for Science.

  • Praise for a New Approach


    I applaud the filmmakers for producing this film in a unique and original manner. By bringing these scientists from vastly different disciplines together and allowing the audience to see the same wonder and discovery at the same time, we are given insight not only into the theories they are studying but also into the scientific process. I like the brave choices in photography and editing which, unlike so many 'documentaries' made today, speaks to the intelligence and imagination of the audience. No, the film does not work perfectly on every level. But what film every does?
