The Darien Historical Society presents the latest program in our Sunday Matinee Series.  

Please join Producer/Director John Maher, a former Darien resident, for his provocative biopic on the “father of modern plastics,” Leo Hendrik Baekeland, a chemist who made one of the most transformative discoveries of the 20th century. 

After the film, John will lead a discussion and answer questions.
