Soft percussion and a toasty scent mark the violent transformation of tough seeds into cloud-like puffs. This is the almost magical process of popcorn-making.

Andrew Smith traces the history of popcorn. [Directed by Mitchelle Tamariz, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Salil Bhayani, cAMP Studio].
