Ray Bradbury said, “This film (Live Forever:The Ray Bradbury Odyssey) will be the fireworks at the end of my life”
“Live Forever: The Ray Bradbury Odyssey” is a magical journey through Ray’s mind from the time he was born, his boyhood and his coming of age. The result of three years of intimate, exclusive and authorised interviews, this emotional and thrilling theatrical experience transports the audience to the 1920’s, to Bradbury’s birth, his magic realist childhood, the literary and film influences which shaped and nurtured the author we have all been affected by – Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.G.Wells, Jules Verne, Buck Rogers, Tarzan, Captain Nemo. We feel Ray’s loss of family, his elation at discovery, his anger at cultural destruction. Enhanced by beautiful and epic music, brilliant animation and dialogue from Ray’s own poetry, we travel with Ray to his literary and futuristic awakening. We are touched by his “Power of Imagination” and gleefully accompany him into Space and the Universe beyond.
