Invention for Destruction (The Fabulous World of Jules Verne)

1958 | 81 minutes

This newly restored feature by Czech animator and designer Karel Zeman pays tribute to the films of French illusionist and director Georges Méliès. Told through live action combined with animated imagery based on Victorian steel engraving, a sinister mogul kidnaps a brilliant but aloof scientist and tricks him into creating a weapon of mass destruction, while his enslaved assistant seeks a way to warn the world.
