Synopsis

Americans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse were two of the greatest inventors of the industrial age. In the 1880s, they would put forward competing electric systems which would become known as the ‘war of the currents’, a battle of science and business to determine which would power the modern world. Backed by J.P. Morgan, Edison ends up lighting the whole of Manhattan. However, Westinghouse has a powerful ally of his own in Nikola Tesla, who believes he has found serious flaws in Edison’s design, proposing their own alternative. ‘The Current War’ is an educational insight into some of the most influential individuals of the time period, and a pivotal moment in scientific advancement.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
