PROTEUS Wins Prestigious Award
from the American Historical Association
At last month's Annual Meeting of the American Historical Association, the largest historical society in the United States, PROTEUS: A NINETEENTH CENTURY VISION was awarded the prestigious 2005 John E. O'Connor Film Award for its outstanding interpretation of history through the medium of film.

PROTEUS: A NINETEENTH CENTURY VISION, a multi-layered, animated exploration of the 19th century's fascination with the undersea world, about the intersection of spirituality, art and science, is according to Science Magazine, "A Truly Stunning Film! Lebrun successfully fuses his selection of images and text to bring to life the drama behind this 19th century vision of nature."
