Arno Peters: Radical Map, Remarkable Man 30-minute documentary film - Watch Free on YouTube
Arno Peters: Radical Map, Remarkable Man is a fascinating short documentary exploring the history of how the Peters Equal Area World Map came into being. The film includes scenes from the WEST WING TV show that featured the Peters 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.
