Alle Kennis Van de Werld: Het papieren internet, a documentary film created and directed by
Ijsbrand van Veelen for the Dutch science series, Noordelicht, shown on Dutch TV Sunday, November 1,
1998. The film is based on an account of the ideas of Paul Otlet and the fortunes of the Mundaneum,
intended to be a great new center for international life, that Otlet and his colleagues created in Brussels at
the end of the First World War and which recently has been re-created as a museum and archive in Mons.
The film was built around Rayward's visit in the period October 10-17, 1998 to and comments on sites in
Brussels important in Otlet's life and work.
