ABOUT THE FILM
NIkola Tesla kicked off the industrial revolution by pioneering the ideas behind electric energy and wireless communications. Though generally uncredited for his inventions, his ideas continue to shape our future. Gentleman, society figure, and engineer, see how his personal life influenced his discoveries and how scientists are still finding new uses for his technology to solve global issues.
The civilization we are living in today stands on Nikola Tesla’s discoveries and patents. The fact that most of people connect Nikola Tesla’s name only with a car, but using his work every day and taking it for granted, made me think more and more about that subject. After l found out also about injustice that happened to him in his life, I said I have to make people aware about Nikola Tesla and his work. I wanted to do a documentary to inspire people to start researching by themselves about Nikola Tesla, because I know that in understanding of his work there is also a key for our future. He was the father of renewable energy and all of his work was to prevent a big problem we are facing today – climate changes. He was observing nature and its laws and made his discoveries upon that..and that was the most inspiring influence for making this documentary film.
