The Most Unknown is a documentary that sends nine scientists across the world to explore some of humanity's biggest questions. How did life begin? What is time? What is consciousness? How much do we really know? Together, they explore the most unknown areas of each other’s work. Along the way, they return to something fundamental about the nature of discovery: Why are seemingly unanswerable questions worth asking. The Most Unknown had its world premiere on March 16, 2018 at the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival.

Directed by Jared Goodman (Rumbo a las Grandes Ligas) | Executive Produced by Joe Berlinger, Spencer Kehe | Edited by Daniel Rezende (City of God) | Assistant Edited by Daniel Quintanilla | Produced by Radical Media & Untold Productions

Language of America explores Native American language, philosophy, and community as never before. Meet Allen Sockabasin, singing his child into becoming a Passamaquoddy speaker; Jessie Littledoe, who against all odds, has brought back her Wampanoag language that had not been spoken for 200 years; and Ella Sekatau, who still refers to non-Indians as "the strangers" and has never forgotten the sacred Narragansett ceremonies.
