Here is a documentary about mathematical dimensions, or more correctly about spatial dimensions. In our daily lives we are, of course, aware of only 3 dimensions. This film deals in the mathematics of proving and displaying the objects and geometry of higher dimensions.
It starts of very elementary, with the explanation of the 2-dimensional space with meridians and parallels and then gets to more complicated stuff in the 4-dimensional space. There is also a chapter about complex numbers after that and a proof of a theorem of geometry.
