“The Most Unknown,” a film produced by Motherboard in association with Science Sandbox, will have its world premiere at the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival (CPH:DOX) on March 16, 2018. Organizers selected this film to open the festival’s CPH:SCIENCE program.
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”), the film is an epic documentary that features nine scientists going 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? What emerges is a deeply human trip to the foundations of discovery and a powerful reminder that the unanswered questions are the ones most worth asking.
After a theatrical and festival run, “The Most Unknown” will become widely available through streaming later this year. Motherboard will release a related digital series of episodic shorts this spring. Watch the official trailer above, and find more information about the film on Motherboard here.
