Production/Distribution series: THE SONG OF STYRENE

The Song of Styrene

Written by acclaimed essayist Raymond Queneau, THE SONG OF STYRENE, commissioned by French plastics giant Péchiney, is ostensibly an investigation into the positive properties of plastics. However, when filtered through Resnais’s uniquely philosophical style of filmmaking, the film takes on a subversively fantastic tone. (19 mins.)

Thomas Beard, co-director of Brooklyn’s Light Industry, will introduce the film.
