Produced at the occasion of the 25th anniversary of magnetic tape production at the German chemical company BASF, Das magische Band (The Magic Tape) tells the history of magnetic recording – from the early telegraphone to modern videotape and digital data storage. More an audiovisual essay than an industrial film in the classical sense, Ferdinand Khittl’s multi-awarded BASF film explores the wide spectrum of electronic media by the means of the medium itself.
