Family Chemistry

50 Minutes, 2012

A 91 year old professor and a theatre manager reclaim a chemical process from the distant past which could change our future. They transform wood pulp to sugars which can be used by the food and fuel industries. The process is clean, reliable and very cheap. The film documents the chemical process and the human process of a unique Israeli Start Up from a small lab in Jerusalem to industrial production of renewable energy. This is the story of a big dream that overcame big obstacles.
