EN - If for most people CERN means the world’s biggest particle physics research centre, for ZimmerFrei it is something else: the most extraordinary social and human experiment based on meritocracy and sharing values. The documentary, Almost Nothing, shows this hidden side of CERN.

NL - Voor de meeste mensen betekent het CERN deeltjesfysica-onderzoek. Almost Nothing neemt een andere benadering: het CERN als een buitengewoon sociaal en menselijk experiment. De documentaire portretteert de multiculturele gemeenschap die leeft in het CERN, alles bij elkaar 15.000 mensen.
