Enterprise

UK, 1951 (MIFF 1953, Public Relations)

Director: Peter Sachs

Brilliant colour cartoon linking the business acumen of a potter in ancient Egypt with the activities of I.C.I. today. The rhymed commentary combined with the admirable visuals make this an outstanding film: never has the case for a vast semi- monopoly been more happily put.
