We interview today's filmmakers from Japan to America to find out why his films are still alive and in many ways unsurpassed. Terry Gilliam, Tim Burton, Koji Yamamura, Kosei Ono and others talk about their inspiration by Karel Zeman. His film The Fabulous World of Jules Verne was released in 70 countries, showing in 96 theaters in New York alone. Zeman was in his field of absolute solitaire, he created his own handmade world based purely from his imagination.
