Particle Fever continues….at CineGlobe – Evening Higgs@10 Years


On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson, and in the presence of filmmakers Mark Levinson (Film Director) and Walter Murch (Film Editor and three Academy Awards Oscar winner), join us for a special evening at the Globe of Science and Innovation on Sunday 3 July at 5.00 p.m.

Mark and Walter will begin the evening with a 30-minute discussion about how Particle Fever, the most popular film on particle physics ever made, came into existence, how it led to the creation of a new graphical way of presenting the standard model of physics (invented by Walter) and how science documentary can be approached in new and exciting ways by coming at it from the perspective of fiction filmmaking.

Following the film, CERN Director-General Fabiola Gianotti, Director for Research Mike Lamont, Monica Dunford, Post-Doc Researcher (ATLAS, CERN), and others will discuss what the discovery of the legendary Higg’s boson meant for particle physics, and will try to answer the question: have we reached the limit of understanding our existence?

Film in English with French subtitles | Discussion in English with simultaneous interpretation into French
