Particle Fever is a 2013 American documentary film tracking the first round of experiments at the Large Hadron Collider near GenevaSwitzerland. The film follows the experimental physicists at CERN who run the experiments, as well as the theoretical physicists who attempt to provide a conceptual framework for the LHC’s results. The film begins in 2008 with the first firing of the LHC and concludes in 2012 with the successful identification of the Higgs boson. Watch via official site or Amazon Prime Video.
