‘Particle Fever,’ Documentary on Nobel Prize Winners, Gets Distribution

Particle Fever

A documentary following six scientists who discovered the Higgs boson (aka “the God particle”) will be distributed and marketed by Abramorama and BOND Strategy and Influence, the companies announced today, the same morning when two of the scientists involved were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics.

The doc, titled “Particle Fever,” will open in New York at Film Forum on March 5, 2014, later expanding to additional cities across the country.

“Particle Fever” is directed by Mark Levinson, produced by David Kaplan and edited by Academy Award winner Walter Murch (“Apocalypse Now,” “The Godfather” trilogy).

“’Particle Fever’ explores the stories of the people behind the experiment,” said director Mark Levinson. “We look forward to bringing the film to audiences beyond the scientific community, to anybody who might have an interest in learning about this momentous event.”

Producer David Kaplan added, “We’re very excited to be working with Abramorama and BOND in order to help Particle Fever reach the broadest public; their tremendous dedication and creativity are exactly what we had been looking for to ensure that our film will achieve its full potential.”

“Particle Fever” represents the latest partnership between Abramorama and BOND, who have worked together on such films as “Exit Through The Gift Shop,” “Senna,” “The Imposter,” and “Brooklyn Castle.”
