Collide@CERN Geneva Intervention
A film made in 48 hours

Collide@CERN Geneva, Filmmaker Jan Peters started his residency almost a month ago. He and his inspiration partner, ATLAS engineer Neal Hartman have had a great start in their collaboration. You may see their opening presentation lecture .

Every Collide@CERN artists residency includes interventions inside and outside the laboratory intended to introduced new ways of looking. For Jan's first intervention he chose to participate in the 48 Hour Film project with a team of CERN workers who volunteered to star in the film as well as write, shoot. devise the script and even write the sound score.

The challenge of is that teams are given specific details on a Friday night to make a film, that they have to turn in on the Sunday night. Jan Peters, Neal Hartman and the CERN volunteers, took part in this project and made it even a bigger challenge by filming it on 16mm film which took six hours to develop six rolls of film and one night to dry. And that was before they even started cutting the film by hand on an old editing machine.

The resulting film was shown during the 19th Edition of the Film Festival known as Tous Ecran in Geneva on Wednesday, November the 6th. What will Jan's next intervention be? He has plans already.
