Screening at Cheshire Public Library

September 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Cheshire Public Library will show All Things Bakelite: The Age of Plastic free to the public on September 16th at 2 pm followed by Q & A.

This film by John Maher is a joyous and provocative story about the “father of modern plastics.” In 1907, Leo Hendrik Baekeland, a Belgian-born American chemist, made one of the most transformative discoveries of the 20th century: Bakelite. It was the first wholly synthetic plastic and it ushered in an explosion of new man-made materials that marked the beginnings of our modern industrial age.
Free. For more information, call 203-272-2245.
