The debate continues over the possibility of fabricating a Wellsian time-machine, quantum physics non-withstanding.
I believe early film serves that purpose. And, books by authors of another age, too. Read Jack London, Balzac, Dickens, and others with points-of-view from another century. Perhaps the product is fiction, but fiction based on the social realities of the time. And by men and women who lived it. Subscribed to it or criticised it.
Time-machines fabricated of celluloid and paper. View and read and be transported.
I viewed a film last evening on the internet. My spouse was watching Jack Nicholson chew up the scenery in Batman, I watched "White Shadows of the South Seas", a silent film with music and some sound-effects.
Directed by Woody Van Dyke and the great documentary film-maker Robert Flaherty, it is is a tale of loss, redemption, and loss again. Of innocence and of life and of death.
Filmed in the Tahiti of another age, no Club-Med, in 1928. Don't go there today looking for what you see on the screen. It is forever changed.
Appreciate the cinematography which won an Oscar for it's cameraman. See and be transported.
