The Road Ahead
Released in 1974, this is a public service film made by the Commercial Credit Company, a subsidiary of Control Data Corporation. The film interviews businessmen, professors, and government officials in order to explore what the business world will look like in the year 1980. Predictions, in part, revolve around the ways in which energy will be used, how transportation will work, and how money will be handled. The film is an interesting window into American business and society’s reactions to the 1970s energy crisis.
