Description by Microcinema:
Magician, inventor and poet Jerry Andrus (1918-2007) has an insatiable appetite for uncovering the mysteries of life on the boundary between reason and illusion. Seen here wandering through his Albany, Oregon, "Castle of Chaos," he demonstrates his incredible inventions (such as the Tri-Zonal Space Warper), and waxes philosophic on the subjects of reason, perception, God, and what he calls "the curse of contentment." Reflecting not only his creative genius, but also his principled lifestyle and profound involvement with the problems of human existence, A THING OF WONDER pays tribute to a man devoted equally to the science and magic of wonder.
