From the plot synopsis, general timeline, and posters they have on the site, it appears that this filmmaker is exploring one aspect of the
Tesla/Marconi work into anti-gravity propulsion, the theft of the research by undercover Nazi spies (Tesla was a pacifist, and never would have given
Hitler the technology of his own volition), and where the information ended up. The biggest giveaway to the Tesla tech nature of the film is the film
poster in the center (in the downloads section of the site) that shows the tower at Wardenclyffe (Tesla's New York State research facility).
There is a school of thought that believes that the vast majority of UFO (specifically flying disc) sightings since the mid-1940s is actually because
of the Tesla/Marconi tests and the Nazi tests of the stolen technology. This school of thought puts the UFOs of terrestrial origin, and not the craft
of aliens. There is a lot of real-world evidence (including patent information) that points to the possible success of Tesla and Marconi actually
creating an anti-gravity propelled flying disc, though none of it is conclusive, mainly due to the non-replicable nature of the patent information
(Tesla was VERY paranoid by that point in his career, and was known to leave out key pieces of information in his patent documents). Although, on the
other side of that coin, Tesla was also known for taking meticulous notes in his research journal, which, oddly, was missing in his ransacked NYC
apartment when his nephew found him dead on January 7, 1943 (though there is no autopsy information, and no photos of his dead body - thus no proof
that his body was even actually there). There's a lot of room for speculation in that regard.
In fact, in the film I'm developing, this is one of the themes it explores (see my sig for the link to the ATS thread about the film I'm working on
- The Tesla War). Now, it's perfectly viable to do a feature length film about each of Tesla's inventions, and this film appears to be doing just
that. My film, on the other hand, is going to use the Tesla technology and conspiracy theories as a background for a mostly character-driven plot -
my film is more about the war between research for the good of mankind, and the greed of big business and world governments, and the humanity that
gets battered in the crossfire.
Either way, this film does look like its worth seeing.
