Part of the Winter 2018 season

Join the University of Liverpool Literature & Science Hub for an evening of film and discussion as we journey into the outer depths of space and question our very own existence.

This specially curated back-to-back film screening begins with what is considered as ‘one of the most famous short films ever made’. Powers of Ten (1977) journeys from a lakeside picnic in Chicago to the furthest reaches of the Universe in this iconic adventure in magnitudes from Charles and Ray Eames. This 9 minute introduction will then be followed by American documentary, Particle Fever (2013), which tracks the first round of experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland. The film begins in 2008 with the first firing of the LHC and concludes in 2012 with the successful identification of the Higgs boson.
