CERN or the Factory for the Absolute

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

This film is about the Largest Hadron Collider in the world (LHC) which is located near the French - Swiss border. By means of the accelerator, the scientists want to simulate the situation shortly after the Big Bang. As a result, they hope to acquire basic information about the structure of mass and reveal the last secrets of the universe. Our observational documentary deals with several serious questions, such as the introduction of the CERN institution, explanation of the experiments and their expected results as well as the introduction of the technological complexity of the project. Last but not least, the possible risks of the human hybris are discussed.
