Storyline

MYSTERIES OF THE UNSEEN WORLD transports audiences to places on this planet that they have never been before, to see things that are beyond their normal vision, yet literally right in front of their eyes. Mysteries of the Unseen World reveals phenomena that can't be seen with the naked eye, taking audiences into earthly worlds secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale. Viewers experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; They "see" the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena of that occur in the flash of a microsecond; They enter the microscopic world that was once reserved only for scientists, but that Mysteries of the Unseen World makes accessible to the rest of us; They begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is TO see on this Earth. High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements in science that now allow us to see a whole new universe of ...

Stunning images and very interesting to listen to
30 April 2018 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Well after reading the other reviews I come to the conclusion that I'm the first one that loved this documentary. It's only fourty minutes long but I feel I learned more in those fourty minutes than in a complete school year. And not only it is instructive but it is also beautifully shot, with stunning images from different techniques as high-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology. I don't know wich one I prefered, they all brought something special to this documentary. The nanotechnology was amazing and sometimes a bit creepy, but oh so interesting. All the things our eyes are not capable to see are shown in this documentary and it's just amazing. Forrest Whitaker is in charge of the narrating voice and that was also a pleasant voice to listen to. If you have fourty minutes time and you like science and nature this is a must-see.
