introduced by Assoc. Prof. Peter Wittich (Physics)

director:
Mark Levinson

Particle physics superstar—the Higgs boson “God particle”—and the CERN Large Hadron Collider are the central figures in this documentary that artfully weaves science with stunning imagery to create a film that will appeal to both the scientific, and lay communities. The emotional ups and downs that led to the discovery of Higgs boson, and the still-to-be-determined significance of what it could mean for the very foundation of the universe make for a fascinating, and undeniably human film. Cosponsored with the Dept. of Physics.
