About WORLD FAIR
WORLD FAIR is a touching documentary that celebrates personal memory, modern design, and visions of the future at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. The film weaves together vibrant, archival footage and present-day interviews with five, warm and humorous characters who attended the fair. As a meditation on the ways we remember and preserve the past, WORLD FAIR explores the stories contained in photographs and home movies, in illustrations, and in the objects we collect and save.
