The old craft of a chemist

A film

Medicines have been produced at pharmacies through centuries. In the 20th century, the manufacturing of medicines was gradually taken over by the pharmaceutical industry, and in 1990 the pharmacies’ production completely ceased.

On this background, the Danish Foundation for the Preservation of Old Pharmacy Equipment & Furniture, now called the Danish Foundation of the History of Pharmacy wished to document the old craft of a chemist and its many proud traditions for posterity.

Each film has a duration of 10 to 15 minutes.

The films are produced by Wessing Film & TV in 1994 for the foundation.
