The Deepest Hole is a 2020 short documentary film written and directed by Matt McCormick that explores a forgotten slice of Cold War history.
While the Space Race, the Arms Race, and a myriad of other Cold War competitions are common knowledge, few know that the United States and Soviet Union also faced off to see which country could dig the deepest hole. This lack of public awareness is particularly surprising seeing that one of the countries may have inadvertently discovered Hell in the process.
