A short film based on Rendezous with Rama

Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. ClarkeRendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke (1973)

This timeless, succinct sci-fi classic is a must read for anyone who loves sci-fi.  For those who shy away from sci-fi, it could be a light-hearted tryst into the future since it’s heavy on straight-forward detail and not terribly long. It’s a scientific experience, not high drama, and this short film created by film students might pique your curiosity.

It’s more of an illustration or “trailer” for the book, at only 3 and a half minutes, but it does embody the awe that the book makes us feel.

Apparently Morgan Freeman has been trying to make Rendezvous with Rama into a movie.  I sure hope he succeeds.
