INEXTINGUISHABLE FIRE

The film explores the connections between the army, science, and industry by looking at the example of Dow Chemical, which produced plastic wrap, but also napalm for the war in Vietnam. Using the diction of instructional films, Farocki explores the manufacture of weapons while asking: How easily can the structural elements of a vacuum cleaner be turned into a machine gun and vice versa?
