Plaste im Alltag
The documentary, produced by the „DEFA-studio“ for popular science films, describes the molecular structure, the physical characteristics and the wide range of industrial applications of the new custom substance: plastic. Shapeable into any form, sometimes elastic, sometimes hard, heat-resistant and roadworthy – synthetic materials did not only symbolize modern consumer society, but also created it. The production of PVC powder in the production places in Buna and their automatic processing into goods of daily needs are introduced, as well as the scientific research of plastic, which helps to make the life richer and more beautiful.
