An engrossing and moving documentary that follows two men as they set out on a journey to build their own time machines. Rob Niosi is a stop motion animator who has spent the last 13 years obsessively constructing a perfect, full-scale replica of the time machine in George Pal’s 1960 adaptation of H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine. It’s his attempt to recapture the memory of seeing the film in a cinema with his father.
Meanwhile, Ronald Mallet has dedicated his life to studying physics and is convinced that when people start investing serious time and money in researching the fourth dimension, traveling through time will become scientific reality. He has become a professor at the University of Connecticut and is now working on building a real time machine in the hope that he might go back in time to save his father’s life.
