With Director Joe Sikorsky in conversation with Tesla Science Center Executive Director Marc Alessi

Tower to the People is a tragic, yet ultimately inspirational story about Nikola Tesla’s most ambitious experiment for humanity. Using a mysterious tower at a laboratory called Wardenclyffe, Tesla dreamed of sending free wireless energy to any point on the globe. His hopes were crushed by the greed, rivalries and ambivalence of the day’s corporate titans. Generations later, however, the world would unite to correct the historical injustice and help preserve the inventor’s legacy using technology Tesla himself helped develop.  (USA, 2015, 115 Mins | Dir. Joe Sikorsky)
