This morning, the Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded to François Englert and Peter W. Higgs for their discovery of the Higgs boson, aka the elusive "God Particle." In timely fashion, the stateside theatrical distribution of documentary "Particle Fever" has been announced, kicking off a week run at Film Forum on March 5, 2014.

The doc follows the inside story of the six scientists who made the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hardron Collider, one of the most significant scientific breakthroughs in history. "Particle Fever" is helmed by Mark Levinson ("Prisoner of Time") and edited by Oscar winner Walter Murch ("Apocalypse Now," "The Godfather" trilogy). This marks Murch’s first foray into documentary features.

The film, which had its North American premiere at this year’s Telluride Film Festival, sold out its NYFF screenings and won the Sheffield Doc/Fest Audience Award. 

Abramorama and BOND Strategy and Influence will handle the distribution and marketing. An expansion is planned following the Film Forum release.

Here's a clip from the film:
