NOVUS is directed by the improvisational, musical group, "VyZ." It is an innovative documentary that celebrates the genius of inventor, Nikola Tesla.
Tesla could make the impossible, possible. He was the most famous man in the world 100 years ago. Today he is virtually forgotten and yet his legacy is everywhere... every time we turn on a light, start a car, tune in a radio, watch tv or use a computer, it is all thanks to Tesla's inventions or discoveries.
The "VyZ" musical score was the inspiration for the film's 58 minute, non-narrative, experimental structure... hence the "VyZ" slogan: "improVyZed music for movies."
"NOVUS" features the timeless animation of master animator's Ray Harryhousen, Max Fleischer and John Sutherland, as well as, NASA space imagery, Edison movies from the Library of Congress, and ephemeral film footage from the Prelinger Archives. The result is an inspiring, yet controversial, portrait of Tesla as a scientific superman who could not only broadcast non-polluting, wireless electricity, but who also secretly created humanity's greatest invention: the flying saucer. This is not science fiction.
The DVD features several Bonus Tracks with Director's Commentary, Deleted Scenes, and a Special Feature called, "Tesla on Imagination."
While avoiding the clichE of "New World Order" conspiracy theories, "NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM" serves as a fairytale tribute to Tesla's advanced technology and vision for humanity to create a "New Order of the Ages."

It is a cartoon fairytale type representation with no reference to Tesla other than one liners coming across the screen stating some statement about Tesla. This video is not a detailed factual story which demonstrates the genius of Tesla. This DVD is not worth purchasing. I would not waste money to purchase this video or DVD since it swindles folks into buying something that they believe has value but this DVD has very little knowledge value on Nikola Tesla.
