Where's the fair

Message par worldfairs »

It inspired a nation, and introduced the technological wonders that would transform the lives of generations of Americans. For more than a century, the World’s Fair was a fixture of American culture. It ushered in the industrial revolution and brought the most exotic corners of the world together in a peaceful celebration of how we are the same, and how we are different. It was an event with scale and grandeur unequaled in American history.

And then it disappeared…or did it?

In 2008 a chance series of events rekindled the magic of the World’s Fair and launched one man on a journey of personal discovery. Where’s the Fair? is the story of that journey, and exploration of the extinction of an American cultural icon.

Where’s the Fair? is the unraveling of a great American tragedy. It is the story of the loss of not only the worlds greatest celebration of culture, art, and science, but also of American exceptionalism, and perhaps even the American dream.

However, Where’s the Fair? is not a history film. It is a raw, critical, contemporary exploration of the policy decisions that continue to isolate and disconnect the United States from the international community. It is the story of what happens when a nation stops dreaming. It is the surprising answer that you find when you ask…Where’s the Fair?
