The research centre CERN as a self-contained, independent zone—a parallel universe so to speak. Here the big bang scenario is recreated, searching for the smallest particle. 

Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s documentary gives an impression of the huge infrastructure which makes an institution like CERN possible. For this Nikolaus Geyrhalter is searching for moments of tension between man and technology. He observes how insight is made, how knowledge originates.  

At CERN, they do basic research. Different to applied or industrial science, the scientists in CERN search for answers to questions beyond physics, which carry a metaphysical dimension within. They are mainly driven by curiosity. What holds the world together within? One doesn‘t need to be a physicist to be interested in such questions.

CERN celebrated its 60th birthday on September 29, 2014.
