“What is this spirit in man that urges him forever to depart from happiness, to toil and to place himself in danger?”
A Solitary World is an homage to H.G. Wells from PBS Digital Studios and filmmaker James W. Griffiths. The text is adapted from: The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The First Men in the Moon (1901), In The Days of the Comet (1906), The World Set Free (1914). Terry Burns is the narrator and the haunting score is from British composer Lennert Busch. It is a breathtaking labor of love in an emerging creative genre: the cinematic poem.
