Tower to the People – Tesla’s Dream at Wardenclyffe Continues

(2015 | Biography/History | 120 min.)

Friday, October 13 | 7 PM | $15

Presented with the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe

Tower to the People – Tesla’s Dream at Wardenclyffe Continues is a 2015 documentary film directed by Joseph Sikorski about Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower. The film documents the history and subsequent decline of the Wardenclyffe complex designed and built by Tesla in Shoreham, New York, as the main laboratory and facility for his experiments on wireless power transmission. The documentary focuses on the role of J.P. Morgan, one of the main investors behind the project, who pulled his support after realizing free wireless energy would hurt his own business interests.[1] Tesla could not find additional investments and in 1906 the project was abandoned and never became operational. After over a century of decay, the tower site was rescued by a successful fundraising campaign and will be converted into a museum the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe honoring the legacy of the Serbian American inventor.

The film builds on Fragments from Olympus, a feature and original screenplay about Tesla’s life written by Joseph Sikorski and Michael Calomino, which received a “best screenplay” award at the Long Island International Film Expo in 2010.

 

This screening is presented in conjunction with ODD BEAUTY: The Techno-Eccentric World of Steampunk, Curated by Art Donovan.
