The particulars of matter

While most of us have heard of CERN and its Large Hadron Collider, few of us have much hope of actually explaining what it is the scientists are doing deep inside the mountains on the Swiss-French border. PARTICLE FEVER is an attempt to explain not only the gigantic particle accelerator itself, but also what the scientists are hoping to discover by recreating the conditions of the Big Bang. The resulting film is an informative, philosophic and entertaining journey into the world of high science, and touches upon the fundamental questions of being.
