The Boy with the Incredible Brain


Daniel Tammet is nothing short of extraordinary. He can perform seemingly impossible mathematical calculations in his head, beyond a standard calculator's range of decimal places. In this classic film, scientists try to understand how Daniel can do what he does. Daniel can speak 9 languages, sees numbers as synesthetic landscapes and can recite Pi to 22,000 decimal places... the list goes on. Unmissable.
