How much do we believe we understand about the most vital aspect of life? Without it, life would be impossible.

Carbon: the unauthorised biography, a documentary about the vital element, will be released in cinemas across Australia later this month and is expected to spark some significant conversations.

The documentary features world-renowned experts, including Tamara Davis AM of the University of Queensland, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe. 

The element that creates life is described in terms of its beneficial and detrimental effects on life, as well as the possible outcomes.

“This documentary is a beautifully interwoven story of life and death – of carbon, of Earth, and of us.” – Professor Tamara Davis AM.

Carbon's story is beautifully told through commentary, interviews, and unique animations.

Carbon has toured internationally and is now coming to Australian television.
On July 12th ABC will be releasing Carbon. You can view the trailer here.
