Join the audience on 12 October at 4.30 p.m. for the screening of the one-hour long Belgian film “François Englert, Rebel and Nobel” in CERN’s main auditorium. The film addresses the life of Englert, the Belgian theoretical physicist and Nobel prize laureate who, along with Robert Brout and, independently, Peter Higgs, theorised the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism in 1964.

Coffee and tea will be served before the screening (starting at 4 p.m.), and the film (in French with English subtitles) will be followed by a discussion about Englert and his work with the filmmakers and Belgian physicists Albert de Roeck and Filip Moortgat.
