Camden International Film Festival CIFF Selects presents: The Most Unknown

Event has passed


Wednesday, May 30, 7 pm

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 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.

Directed by Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Ian Cheney (The Search for General Tso, The City Dark, King Corn) and advised by world-renowned filmmaker Werner Herzog. 

Q&A with Director Ian Cheney to follow!

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased day of show at the Camden Opera House Box Office. Kids and students admitted free!
