We've explored art with meetups for the documentaries Tim's Vermeer and Finding Vivian Maier... now let's science geek out with Mark Levinson's documentary Particle Fever!
The film is showing at 6:50pm on Monday, May 5th. Choose your own adventure:
*Meet up at BreadCo: 5:30pm
*Meet in the theater lobby: 6:30pm
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Note on BreadCo: If you're going to the Bread Co for the first time, please note that the Bread Co isn't in the mall, and also results may vary if you GPS the address. It's located off of Clayton Road, in the plaza across the parking lot from Saks Fifth Avenue. It's a quick walk over, or you can move your car if you wish. I usually keep a sign with me to help make the group easy to find.
From Landmark: Imagine being able to watch as Edison turned on the first light bulb, or as Franklin received his first jolt of electricity. 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? Directed by Mark Levinson, a physicist turned filmmaker, and masterfully edited by Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now, The English Patient, The Godfather trilogy), Particle Fever is a celebration of discovery, revealing the very human stories behind this epic Machine.
