the rainbow experiment

A film by Christina Kallas

USA/129 mins.


A terrible accident happens in a Manhattan high school chemistry class when a teacher is conducting the rainbow flame experiment. This experiment, a popular staple of high school chemistry classes, features dramatic, colorful bursts of fire that show the variety of colors produced when different metals or salts meet a flame. But it is also very dangerous because it uses methanol, a highly volatile liquid to ignite the fires. In this story, after a student is horribly injured, the investigation into what really happened and who is really to blame becomes a brilliantly crafted whodunnit that does not slow up for one single moment. This film is hugely original, and Kallas is a director to watch.
