Documentaire die 9 wetenschappers volgt in hun zoektocht naar antwoorden op fundamentele vragen. De film wordt geïntroduceerd door 2 hoofdrolspelers.

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.

The performance will be attended by two of the main characters: the Belgian neurologist Prof. Axel Cleeremans (ULB) and the Italian physicist dr. Davide D'Angelo (Milan). They provide a short introduction and Q&A after the film. The film is English spoken; no subtitles are provided.
