We have a video titled "Fractals - An Animated Discussion" purchased from
W.H. Freeman & Co. (212) 576-9400. Synopsis states that the film turns the
Mandelbrot set and the Lorenz attractor into visible and easily
comprehensible objects as their discoverers discuss the background history

sequences and intriguing interviews.
