PARTICLE FEVER
Directed by Mark Levinson
USA, 2013, 99 minutes, documentary

Meet the Filmmaker: Mark Levinson will take part in a discussion moderated by  Robin Bell, Doherty Senior Research Scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

The multinational physicists at Switzerland's Large Hadron Collidor may be perceived as dorky by the outside world, but in this winning documentary we get to know themtheir good humor, their personalities and profiles. What they're pursuing is the elusive "Higgs boson"or the "God particle." Thrilling animated sequences inform us just what this is, in an exhilarating science lesson that's neither dumbed down nor tarted up.

"It's jaw-droppingly cool stuff, explained with admirable clarity by an affable physicist tour guide, David E. Kaplan, and wedded to the tale of a massive technological undertaking like nothing [before] in history. ('The biggest machine ever built by human beings,' as one scientist puts it.) And it's flat-out thrilling."  Trey Graham, NPR

"Watching a film won't make you smarter, but if there ever was one that could, it would be Particle Fever, a movie so mind-bending you can almost feel your brain cells growing as you're watching it.  Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

"Particle Fever is a fascinating movie about science, and an exciting, revealing and sometimes poignant movie about scientists." "Mind blowing"  A.O. Scott, The New York Times
