The Secret World of Lewis Carroll is a 2015 English-language Documentary movie written by Renato Custodio Jr., Elmer Gatchalian and Jenilee Chuanasu. The movie is directed by Prime Cruz and produced by Maolen Fadul. It's a timeless classic of children's literature and the third most-quoted book in English after the Bible and Shakespeare. But what lies behind the extraordinary appeal of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to generations of adults and children alike? To mark the 150th anniversary of its publication, this documentary explores the life and imagination of the man who wrote it, the Reverend Charles Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll. Broadcaster and journalist Martha Kearney delves into the biographies of both Carroll himself and of the young girl, Alice Liddell, who inspired his most famous creation. Kearney's lifelong passion for Carroll's work began as a young girl, when she starred as Carroll's heroine Alice in her local village play. She discusses the book with a range of experts, biographers and distinguished cultural figures - from the actor Richard E Grant to children's author Philip Pullman - and explores with them the mystery of how a retiring, buttoned-up and meticulous mathematics don, who spent almost his entire life within the cloistered confines of Christ Church Oxford, was able to capture the world of childhood in such a captivating way. The secret world of lewis carroll features Sue Ramirez in the title role along with an ensemble cast including Miles Ocampo, Michelle Vito, Jane De Leon, Chanel Morales, Martha Kearney and Richard E. Grant. The music was composed by Alyana Cabral. Cinematography was done by Mackie Galvez and editing by Galileo Te. It was released on 31st January 2015. Distribution rights for the motion picture were acquired by Regal Films.
