quietearth [Celluloid 02.14.12] scifi documentary



This documentary explores the John Titor time traveller story which has become something of a legend. While I'm sure this meme is soon to run it's course, specifically because many of prediction did NOT come true, it's in production and will be playing at HotDocs.

You're probably saying what if he came from a different timeline? I respond with: at what point would anyone in the future need an IBM 5100 to debug legacy code?


The year is 2036. Decades after the second American Civil War and the global nuclear strike known as 'N-Day', an American soldier named John Titor is assigned a top secret mission: travel back in time to the year 1975 and retrieve an IBM 5100 computer. During this mission, John would make an unexpected stop in the year 2000 for "personal reasons." There he would connect with his family and then 2-year-old self and begin interacting online with a group of open-minded time travel enthusiasts. John would share information about the future and a detailed description of his time machine and how it works. While some question the veracity of John's claims, others believe he was truly a man from the future. How to Build a Time Machine is a genre bending 'non-fiction, science-fiction mystery' that will explore the story of John Titor through interviews and detailed recreations based on John's original internet posts. We'll also talk with theoretical physicists and time travel enthusiasts about the scientific reality of time travel and how this simple concept has inspired science fiction fans around the world. The result will be a unique, cinematic experience that's sure to both entertain and enlighten.
