Considered as one of the often-overlooked inventors of all time, Serbian American scientist Nikola Tesla finally gets the recognition he so deserved in a documentary titled, Nikola Tesla – Genius Who Lit the World. A genius who was well ahead of his time, Tesla paved the way for modern current technology: alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. Tesla’s many inventions include the concept of television, radio, radio astronomy, x-ray, radar, robotics, remote control, and wireless transmission of electricity. The documentary celebrates the life and the many discoveries of the charismatic scientist as well as his struggles throughout his career.
Nikola Tesla – Genius Who Lit the World pays homage to one of the most notable futurist of our time. While Tesla’s personal life has always been shrouded in mystery, the film details importance of his findings in the research for energy production, which most government agencies and energy companies are actually opposed to. The documentary paints a picture of a man who has committed his life improving the lives of mankind through science. Despite Tesla’s success as an inventor and electrical engineer, he was impoverished and in debt until the day he was found dead in his hotel room.
