A film project will reveal the human stories behind the elements and expose the startling rate at which we’re using them up – From the guardian.
“Depending on whom you ask, there are between 90 and 94 naturally occurring elements. For our new project, 94 Elements, we went with the higher figure. Number 94, plutonium, offers too many possibilities for documentary filmmakers to omit.
The stories of the elements are the stories of human life. Trace their patterns and they reveal the details of our personal lives, the state of our economies and our relationships with natural resources. Our bodies are mostly made from just six of them, each atom forged in the heart of a star perhaps now thousands of light years away. The universe is a fastidious recycler.”
