Two men from very different backgrounds, one a Hollywood animator, the other an established scientist, have each nurtured a lifelong obsession with time travel. Robert Niosi, a former animator on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, is driven by his dream of recreating a live-scale model of the title prop from the 1960 film The Time Machine, based on the novel by H. G. Wells. Physicist and professor Ron Mallett, haunted by the early death of his father, explores the possibilities of turning back the clock by studying the science of black holes. Jay Cheel’s poignant documentary goes beyond the concept of time travel to ponder ideas of love, loss, and what keeps us moving towards the future while enveloped by the past.
Q&A film subjects Robert Niosi & Dr. Ronald Mallett
Dr. Ronald Mallett’s book, Time Traveler: A Scientist’s Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality, will be available for sale and signing courtesy of The Village Bookstore.
