Particle Fever

Synopsis:

Mark Levinson and David Kaplan, both filmmaker/physicists, have done the almost-impossible, a parallel accomplishment to that of their subjects: Their PARTICLE FEVER makes the search for the Higgs boson (the so-called “God particle”) not just comprehensible, but sexy, entertaining fun. The Nobel Prize for Physics was recently awarded to the scientists responsible for this discovery. Assisted by Oscar-winning editor Walter Murch (APOCALYPSE NOW, THE ENGLISH PATIENT) and acclaimed musical composer┬áRobert Miller, the film watches as “the biggest machine ever built by human beings” is about to be turned on, and considers how it can be that the Higgs “is the crucial particle for holding everything together.” Here is a film that unabashedly embraces the notion of the universe as a great and wondrous thing of beauty, whose most profound mysteries are just beginning to be revealed.

    I am looking to purchase a DVD of Particle Fever, it’s July 2015, has the DVD version been released? I want a hard copy for my library, so I can share this with friends in the years to come.

    Please advise on the availability, and whom to purchase a copy from.

    Sincerely,

    Gill Wright

    Anyone know why we have to wait until maybe July to get the dvd, or if it will be in 2nd-run theaters before then? It played only briefly at the local art cinema in Tucson. Or is it just more nuke hype, and I’ll hate the additional glorification of yet more exploitation of deadly nuke technology?

  3. bill says:

    Not only about a physics experiment but about the people who pulled it off. Going “from failure to failure with the same undaunted enthusiasm.” A human story with plenty of hi tech excitement. Could have used more on the LHC itself, but that’s available elsewhere. You don’t need a PhD to enjoy this film.
