Three Wise Men - Parallel Lives is a new and exciting film directed by Sada Rajiah and Desire Prevost and it is based on a true story. It is a fantastic watch if you are looking for something unique and interesting to watch.

Three Wise Men - Parallel Lives, is based in 2020 at the peak of the energy crisis with the constant debate of energy (renewable and fossil fuels). One man named Deane Thomas is ambitious and full of hope and he takes a journey, which is what the film is essentially about. The audience follows him on his journey and experiences.

The audience sees the parallel lives of three men born across history. Starring one of the most famous scientists of all time - Nikola Tesla, who was born and raised in the Austrian empire and climbed to fame for his inventions and never gave up. Also, "Major" Ibrahim Atchia, who started experiments in a small stream behind his family home in the 19th century and went on to create the Reduit Hydro Power.

Major Atchia transformed Mauritius like Tesla in the USA. He brought electricity to a place that had never experienced it before. Deane Thomas together with Tomislav Tesla create plans for Mauritius. This film shows the undoubtable parallels between the lives.

One of the many great elements of this film was the beautiful filming. All of the shots were amazing! Visually it was a stunning film with smooth and elegant editing, which added to the mood of the film. Furthermore, the acting was amazing! All of the actors are very talented and evidently dived into the role with passion.

The writing of the film is another great element. It is filled with inspirational words from all the characters that captivates the essence of energy issues, characters, and plot.

Overall, I highly recommend everyone to watch this short film! You can catched it on Vimeo (either to rent or purchase). It had no production budget yet was still outstanding in every way!
