Storyline

Nikola Tesla is transforming from cult-hero to mainstream icon. Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of his life revolves around a small building in Shoreham, NY called Wardenclyffe. It is here, Tesla hoped to transmit free wireless energy to anyone on the globe. Destitute and without sponsors, Nikola Tesla was forced to abandon his dream. Almost a century later, a new generation picked up the torch, hoping to rescue the historic property from decay, and preserve it forever. "Tower to the People- Tesla's Dream at Wardenclyffe Continues" explores the genius inventor's dream for Wardenclyffe, and shares the important story of how the last lab of Nikola Tesla was ultimately saved by various groups of dedicated people, using technology Tesla himself helped develop. From a local non-profit organization, a popular internet web comic known as "the Oatmeal", a group of independent filmmakers, to the generosity of people throughout the world, "Tower to the People- Tesla's Dream at ...

Fascinating perspective of Tesla's Wardenclyffe laboratory and tower...
5 October 2014 | by cjfitz52-124-899315See all my reviews

I have taught and studied Tesla for almost 15 years and I walked away from this documentary with information I had never known before. The documentary gave a fascinating account of the interactions between Nikola Tesla and JP Morgan.

I loved the light-heartedness of some of the interviews, while still delivering a very clear depiction of who Nikola Tesla was. The images and animations throughout the documentary are far superior to any other Tesla documentary I have viewed. The information was delivered in a very clear, concise manner.

I can easily see this film being a solid foundation for a Nikola Tesla curriculum that is currently being developed for schools by the Tesla Science Foundation.

Joseph Sikorski does an amazing job bringing light to Tesla's Wardenclyffe laboratory. He details how it was designed, how it operated, why it failed, and finally how it was saved and is being revitalized into a museum.

If you are a fan of Nikola Tesla, this is a must watch documentary.
