The movie

The Edge of all we Know (Inscience Film Festival)

Black holes pose puzzles at the frontier of physics, mathematics, astronomy, and philosophy. Following Hawking's last work, the film is an inquiry into the limits of what we can predict, what we can see, what we can know.

On April 10th 2019 the world was presented with the first photograph of a black hole. This picture was the result of the work of a global network of scientists and telescopes under the name Event Horizon Telescope. This documentary provides a behind-the-scene look of the years of work and dedication that made this incredible achievement possible, including the final attribution from Stephen Hawking to science. A tribute to those scientists that extend the border of our vision and therefore our knowledge.
