Imagine watching Edison turn on the first light bulb, or Franklin receive his first jolt of electricity. This jaw-droppingly cool documentary offers a front row seat to a scientific breakthrough as it happens: the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, which would potentially explain the origin of all matter. The scientists’ excitement is infectious as they recreate conditions just moments after the Big Bang—but the question remains: have we reached our limit in understanding why we exist? D: Mark Levinson, US, 2014, 99m
