    Divine Discontent: Charles Proteus Steinmetz Evidence of Charles Proteus Steinmetz's work appears nearly everywhere and yet today, the "father of electrical engineering" is virtually forgotten. Steinmetz's groundbreaking work made the generation and widespread transmission of electricity safe and possible, and enabled the functioning of the modern world. His complex mathematical theories unlocked the mystery and power of a force few of his contemporaries understood.
    This documentary traces the life and career of "The Wizard of Schenectady" (1865-1923) - from his immigration from Germany to his pioneering work with General Electric to the physical challenges he faced throughout his life. Standing just over four feet tall, Steinmetz transcended his multiple physical disabilities, including hip dysplasia, curvature of the spine and dwarfism, to live a robust, active life.
