The World That Nature Forgot

USA, 1954 (MIFF 1956, Elements)

Director: Lewis Jacobs

This is the story of a new world, a world that begins in the mysterious universe of atoms and molecules, which combine in countless numbers to form everything we see and touch. It is the story of how man has learned from nature's examples to join these same atoms and molecules to form substances never before seen under the sun. These new materials are the world of plastics.
