Directed by Emmy Award-nominated and Peabody Award-winning documentarian Ian Cheney and advised by renowned filmmaker Werner Herzog, 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. The film demonstrates how a meeting of researchers can take place across disciplines, and it is a magnificent portrait of the desire of modern research to understand the unknown and make it tangible.
