The extraordinary life story of carbon, the most talked about but least understood element on earth. Through an epic sensory cinematic adventure through time and place we reveal that carbon’s story is not just about a warming climate, devastated oceans and whether or not we should put a tax on it. The story of carbon is the essential story of us.
