Avant première of 'Particle fever' on 10 December at CERN

CERN people will have the chance to see a preview of the film "Particle Fever" in CERN's main auditorium on Tuesday 10 December at 7.30pm. The director, Mark Levinson, will be in attendance to speak with the audience about the film after the screening.

CERN and its experiments have been the focus of innumerable television documentaries, news reports, and other media productions.  However, until now, no film about the search for the Higgs Boson has been made for theatrical release in the classic documentary tradition.

"Particle Fever" has received numerous awards and travelled to festivals around the world, where it has consistently played to sell-out audiences.  The film will begin a commercial theatrical run in the United States in early 2014, but CERN people have the chance to see a preview in the

CERN main auditorium on Tuesday, 10 December at 7.30pm.  

The director, Mark Levinson, has worked on films such as "The English Patient" and "Cold Mountain", but he also has a PhD in physics. Mark will be in attendance to speak with the audience about the film after the screening.
