About the Film

Mysteries of the Unseen World transports audiences to places on this planet they have never been before, to see things that are beyond their normal vision, yet are literally right in front of their eyes.

High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements in science that allow us to see a whole new universe of things, events, creatures, and processes we never knew existed. These technologies now give us “super powers” to see beyond what is in front of us.

Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Mysteries of the Unseen World will enthrall audiences as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can’t see, a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their own bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute-by-minute—and nanosecond-by-nanosecond. With this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.
