Storyline

WORLD FAIR is a short documentary that explores personal memory and amateur cinematography through a singular, spectacular event: the 1939 New York World's Fair. On the heels of the Great Depression and with war mounting overseas, millions of people traveled to a former ash dump in Queens, New York, to catch a fleeting glimpse of a better future. WORLD FAIR weaves together the memories of former fairgoers - now in their eighties and nineties - with vibrant archival footage, transporting viewers to the futuristic and hopeful realm of the 1939 New York World's Fair. As a meditation on the ways we remember and preserve the past, WORLD FAIR celebrates the stories contained in photographs and home movies, in illustrations, and in the objects we collect and save.
