Touching Soap Films

I am sorry to say that this week we present a not-so-uncommon occurrence, that is, a hard-to-find video, which is out of stock since years and has not been reprinted by the publisher. It is currently unavailable in DVD edition, but there are VHS copies out there. It’s a pity, no, it’s a crying shame, because it presents in a very fun and engaging cartoon, a huge amount of concepts in minimal surfaces. The movie can catch simultaneously the attention of a young child and of a differential geometer. In fact, it also discusses contemporary research topics, which makes it interesting even to minimal surface scholars and optimal geometers. Its only shortcoming is the amount of time and money it took me to get a copy: however, the video was well worth it.
