Arno Peters: Radical Map, Remarkable Man was produced, shot and directed by Brookline, MA videographer Ruth Abrams. A collaborative project with her map-publisher son, Bob Abrams, this fascinating 30-minute documentary explores the history of how the Peters Equal Area World Map came into being. The project took six years for Bob and Ruth to complete, and it was filmed on-location at Dr. Peters' home in Bremen, Germany, as well as in Oxford, England, and a variety of locations in the USA. The film includes scenes from the WEST WING TV show that featured the map as well as cartographic critiques that show the tension and conflict that the Peters map generated amongst the cartographic establishment. The film contains the only English-language interviews ever conducted with Arno Peters. Dr. Peters died in 2002, fifteen months after these interviews were filmed. The Peters World Map was a radical map, and as this film shows, Arno Peters was truly a remarkable man. His impact will be felt for generations to come.
