Mysteries of the Unseen World will allow viewers to see things not visible to the naked eye, thanks to the film’s innovative use of high-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology. The audience will be taken into the microscopic world once reserved only for scientists to see a whole new universe of things, events, and creatures. Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research.
