A documentary by a local filmmaker about one of America’s favorite sci-fi writers is set to make its debut in Ventura this weekend.
“Live Forever-The Ray Bradbury Odyssey” is being screened Sunday at a sold out Ventura Film Society Event.
The author, who died this past summer, wrote classics like “Farenheit 451”, as well as numerous episodes of television series like “The Twilight Zone”.
Michael Kelly of Ventura produced and directed the documentary, which uses a unique approach to having Bradbury tell his own story. Bradbury talks to himself as a 12 year old boy, with the boy played by an actor.
Bradbury was a frequent visitor to Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties, taking part in writers conferences, and film festivals. Plans call for the documentary to go on the film festival circuit, followed by a theatrical release.
