    Default The Chronoscope......this is completely new to me!

    I came across this short documentary.....utterly bizarre and fascinating. I'm having some trouble locating more information please post links if you know more.

    Desc: A documentary about a 1930s scientist who invented a machine that could see into the past. The Cronoscope or Cronovisor was created by an Irish woman Charlotte Keppel a magnificent mind who has been excluded from the history books of today.

    This is a spoof, a "mockumentary", satire.. (It shouldn't be posted in Alt Sci)

    The Chronoscope is a film written and directed by Andrew Legge which was made as part of Wicklow County Council's Per Cent for Art commissioning programme.

    Entitled The Chronoscope, the film script is a satire on the extreme politics of the time and tells the story of a fictionalised fascist group, who steal a device that can see the past in order to create propaganda films of their heroes from the past.
