The Edge of All We Know
10 April 2019, a historic milestone: the first photo of a black hole is presented to the world. The Event Horizon Telescope project did what previously seemed impossible. Through years of dedication by a global network of scientists, advised by Stephen Hawking, it managed to achieve incredible results. The Edge of All We Know is a tribute to the scientists who pushed the boundaries of what we can see and what we can know to the impossible.
'The goal of the film is not just to popularize already-achieved science results—it is to bring the audience into the all-too human conduct of science, the dynamics of collaboration, the challenges of observing and theorizing, the tantalizing clues to space and time that can be garnered in the making of science at the absolute forefront of what we can understand.'
