The film "Why Man Creates" by Saul Bass is available on Video from Pyramid
Film and Video, 2801 Colorado Ave, Santa Monica Ca. 90404. Tel: 213-828-

Our school bought it a couple of years ago and I use it as a wonderful
introduction into the discussion of "where do Ideas come from?" and "what is
creativity?" Years ago, I used to rent it (16mm) from the University of
NH, but the film is no longer available there because it wore out. It is
the type of film that is good to own, so that you can show it year after
year, over and over again.

Though the film was made more than 20 years ago, it is amazing how current
the ideas and format remain. The kids love it and at the same time it opens
up new avenues of thought. I highly recommend it.
