Music by Carson Kievman
The drama of Tesla is that of a “clash of titans,” the rise and fall of a Serbo-Croation immigrant dreamer and his legendary battles with Thomas Edison. It has often been said that a true genius is never recognized in his lifetime: Nikola Tesla’s prophetic work framed the worlds portrayed in science fiction and also formed the foundation for modern-day wireless energy transfer, communications, laser beams, neon and fluorescent lighting, radio transmission, remote control and robotics.
A true visionary, Tesla gave away a vast number of patents because they were fossil fuel-consuming, and went to work on the Tesla Coil which would connect humanity to the very wheelwork of nature and allow the extraction of free and non-polluting energy for all. As a result he died a pauper, crushed by the greed and hunger for power of his contemporaries.
