It is one of several documentary features from Director John Maher (Throw it Down), that arrived on multiple digital platforms on June 29, 2021 worldwide. In partnership with Bitmax, Executive Producer Hugh Karraker is bringing his great-grandfather Leo Baekeland’s story to iTunes, Apple TV, Google Play, YouTube, VUDU and more to six continents.

Baekeland was best known for the inventions of Velox photographic paper in 1893, and, more importantly, Bakelite in 1907. He has been called “The Father of the Plastics Industry” for his invention of Bakelite, an inexpensive, nonflammable and versatile plastic, which marked the beginning of the modern plastics industry.
