Particle Fever

  • Director: Mark Levinson
  • Genre(s): Documentary
  • Rating: NR
  • Running Time: 99 min.

For the first time, a film gives audiences a front row seat to a significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough as it happens. Particle Fever follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, marking the start-up of the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet, pushing the edge of human innovation. As they seek to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries joined forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially explaining the origin of all matter. But our heroes confront an even bigger challenge: have we reached our limit in understanding why we exist?

"Particle Fever is that rare, exhilarating science doc that’s neither dumbed down nor drabbed up."
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"There's a palpable excitement around the search for knowledge, and this film captures that beautifully."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"A dazzling, dizzying documentary about nothing less than whether we exist in a coherent universe of ordered, even beautiful laws ..."
- Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
"A documentary about science for professionals and laypeople alike, Particle Fever celebrates an event of earth-shattering importance, though what far-ranging transformations it heralds remain unknown"
- Ronnie Scheib, Variety
