All Things Bakelite: The Age of Plastic is a joyous and provocative one-hour documentary that captures both the wonder and the curse of chemist Leo Hendrik Baekeland’s biggest invention: the first wholly synthetic plastic. One of the greatest stories of science never told comes alive using reenactments; rare archival footage and personal diaries; interviews with scientists, historians, and artists; and a highly entertaining original score.
