Mysteries of the Unseen World Premieres November 8

You won't believe your eyes when the new giant screen film Mysteries of the Unseen World takes you on an extraordinary journey into hidden dimensions beyond your normal vision to uncover the mysteries of things too fast, too slow, too small to be seen or simply invisible. Director Louie Schwartzberg is the acknowledged master of innovative high-speed and time-lapse photography, and he combines these sequences with electron microscopy and nano imagery that transports audiences to an enthralling secret world of nature, events and breathtaking phenomena not visible to the naked eye.
