Carbon: The Unauthorised Biography, directed by Daniella Ortega and Niobe Thompson, is a spectacular and surprisingly unorthodox documentary that reveals the paradoxical story of the element that builds all life, and yet may end it all.
Narrated in first person by Sarah Snook, Carbon tells of her birth in the violent core of an exploding star and of turbulent sagas through the fabric of our evolving Earth. Accompanied by celebrated scientists, unique animations and a stunning orchestral score, Carbon reminds us of our humble participation in the most extraordinary story in the universe.
