About the Project
Secrets of the Universe, a film project for giant screen theaters aims to capture the excitement and groundbreaking science unfolding at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN–one of the largest scientific enterprises ever undertaken by humankind. Initial production work for the project began in late 2014 with research and shooting at the CERN super-collider facility which sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. The film is slated for release summer 2017.
The objectives for the Secrets of the Universe giant screen project are: to stimulate greater public interest and excitement for science; educate viewers on the amazing developments in particle physics and instil an appreciation for the value of scientific research and; inspire the youth, specifically women and minorities, to consider a path in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
