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

(2015 | Biography/History | 120 min.)

Friday, October 13 | 7 PM | $15 ($10 for Students)

Presented with Joseph Sikorski and the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe

BUILT FOR HUMANITY… DESTROYED BY GREED.

Nearly a century ago, Nikola Tesla dreamed of sending free wireless energy from a mysterious tower and lab on Long Island called Wardenclyffe. Deteriorating for decades, the remains of his great work were almost lost forever.

Until a grateful world united to save it. One click at a time.

Featuring interviews with celebrity magician Penn Jillette, the Oatmeal’s Matthew Inman, Tesla’s relative William Terbo, Peabody Award-Winner Jack Hitt and many other distinguished guests, TOWER TO THE PEOPLE shows the mysterious past, uplifting present, and exciting future of Nikola Tesla’s last remaining lab on the planet. It is an inspirational story that is part science, part history and part community.

Following the screening will be a Q&A with TOWER TO THE PEOPLE filmmaker/Tesla researcher Joseph Sikorski, who has most recently appeared on CBS News, the Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum, and Penn Jillette’s popular Sunday School program. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Southampton Arts Center and the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe.

Presented in conjunction with ODD BEAUTY: The Techno-Eccentric World of Steampunk, Curated by Art Donovan.
