A Wrinkle In Time Gone In 90 Seconds

One of my favorite books as a kid was Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle In Time. I’ve probably read that book upwards of 20 times by now, and I’ll bust it out every few years just for fun. Did you know the series comprises 5 novels, with another 4 detailing the exploits of Meg and Calvin’s children? I didn’t until just now.

90-Second Newbery is a contest where entrants take a Newbery Award winning novel and turn it into a 90 second short film. Here is the entry for A Wrinkle In Time:

Not bad at all. Certainly better than the lame Disney movie version…

  1. Hello, this is James Kennedy, the co-curator of the “90-Second Newbery” film festival (and the author of the YA fantasy The Order of Odd-Fish.)

    Thanks for spreading the word about our video contest! There are tons of other science fiction and fantasy titles in the Newbery canon that are just screaming for a 90-second treatment. “The Grey King” or “The Dark is Rising” by Susan Cooper (1976 Newbery medalist and 1974 Newbery honor, respectively)? “The Tombs of Atuan” by Ursula LeGuin (1972 honor)? “The High King” by Lloyd Alexander (1969 medalist)? There’s an embarrassment of riches here.

    I hope that the SF Signal community rises to the challenge of compressing these into 90 seconds!

  2. Awww, I thought it would be a mashup of ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ and ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’.
