Yet the 18th century Swede's writings profoundly influenced some of the world's greatest and most influential writers thinkers, including Goethe, William Blake, Balzac, Baudelaire, Coleridge, Elizabeth Browning and Robert Browning, Yeats, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Dostoevsky, D.T. Suzuki, and Helen Keller. Directed by Emmy Award winner Penny Price, this documentary biography of Swedenborg the scientist, theologian, visionary, philosopher, and mystic won a second-place Telly Award. Price weaves together nature photography, interviews, and animation not only to tell the life story of this compelling man, but also to convey some of his thinking about death, the afterlife, spirituality, and the meaning of life. Highlights include numerous quotes from Swedenborg. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
