LE MYSTERE ETTORE MAJORANA, UN PHYSICIEN ABSOLU
by Camille Guichard
(France, 2016, 52’ )
The life and genius of Ettore Majorana have retained their mystique, 80 years after his mysterious disappearance in March 1938 when he was only 31 years old. Physics had just discovered the atom, WWII was about to explode, and a very young Majorana had already pushed forward the boundaries of quantum physics and cosmology with his theory of neutrinos. The lm unfolds like a detective novel and a scienti c thriller, investigating Majorana’s mysterious disappearance as well as the history of physics in a deeply troubled period such as the Thirties.
