  1. HI Everyone, I recently joined this community because I hope you will support "FACE of a Nation" when we finish it this year. I am a licensed architect and professor who has been researching the story of America's presence at world's fairs. "FACE OF A NATION: What Happened to the World's Fair?" shows the erosion of the American image internationally when America abandons the World's Fair. The film covers the de-funding and elimination of the federal agency in charge of the representation of the American people. Emmy-award winning composer Nathan Pangrazio-- composed an original orchestral score to capture the love of our country. www.faceofanationmovie.com If you have any questions, please feel free to email me @: empresschow1@yahoo.com I hope you will tell everyone about this film. THANK YOU!!!! l,mina Mina M. Chow, AIA, NCARB Adjunct Assoc. Professor USC School of Architecture
  2. A trip down Memory lane

    Hello all, Did you attend the 1964-65 World Fair ? Does it hold a special place in your memories ? Do you currently live in New York and consider its changing landscape ? My name is Charlotte. I'm a graduate student pursuing a Masters in Media Studies at the New School in New York. I am currently in production of a short documentary on the 1964-65 World Fair. I'm showcasing Flushing Meadows Corona Park as it is now, while focusing on the people that attended the fair. My interest lies in their memories, their subjectivity; what that time felt like then, what it means now, how thinking of the fair then and now weaves it all together. It's a mix of oral history of the fair and essayist documentary filmmaking. To put it simply, I'd just love to hear about your experience attending the fair. The 1964-65 World Fair and what it evokes fascinates me and I am obviously not the only one. I'm especially interested in hearing what it means to you. I'll be conducting interviews in the near future and I'm looking for more voices. It's exciting for me to see the community that's been created here and its emphasis on sharing of memories and pictures. In a way, that's what my film is about. Would you be interested in sharing your story ? Please come forward, I'll be happy to tell you about me, and what has lead me to this project that is very dear to me ! Mostly, I'll be excited to hear your account of the World Fair. I'd so appreciate your help. I can't wait to hear from you ! Feel free to contact me on facebook (Charlotte Prager), by email (charprgr@gmail.com), or give me a call (646 784 7780). Thank you and hope you are having a lovely day. Let's talk about the fair ! Best, Charlotte
  3. Hi everyone, I posted about this topic in the Introductions section but am hoping to start a larger conversation here. Forgive for the cross-post! I'm a documentary filmmaker based in Brooklyn NY, and wanted to let you all know about my new documentary film, WORLD FAIR. WORLD FAIR is a short documentary about memory, amateur cinematography, and the 1939 New York World's Fair. The film incorporates archival Kodachrome footage from the fair, and focuses on the world's fair memories of five, lovely characters, now in their eighties and nineties, living in New York and Connecticut. (The title is an intentional play on words! I'm interested in how the fair helped visitors imagine an attractive, hopeful, modern world.) This film has been my labor of love for the past year and is nearly ready for the big screen. As of this posting I am in the FINAL WEEK of fundraising to finish WORLD FAIR on Kickstarter. I would be so grateful for the support of folks in this community. I have until March 19 to reach my mimimum goal - and every bit helps. I held a work-in-progress screening recently at the Museum of the City of New York, and I look forward to bringing the finished film to communities across the country in months ahead. The film has been invited to make an exciting premiere this spring... but before that can happen, I need to reach my fundraising goal. You can learn more about WORLD FAIR and watch a 3-minute project video right here: http://kck.st/XojgEt I would be so grateful for your contributions! If you'd like to know more about the film, host a screening of the film, or suggest potential funders, drop a note on this page, or email me at amanda@wickedelicate.com. Thank you! Amanda
  4. Hi everyone, I'm a documentary filmmaker based in Brooklyn NY, and I'm pleased to let you know about my new film, WORLD FAIR. This film has been my labor of love for the past year and is nearly ready for the big screen. WORLD FAIR is a short documentary about personal memory, amateur cinematography, and the 1939 New York World's Fair. The film incorporates colorful archival footage from the fair, and focuses on the world's fair memories of five, lovely characters (now in their eighties and nineties) living in New York and Connecticut. I'm raising some essential finishing funds on Kickstarter and would be so grateful for the support of folks in this community. I have until March 19 to reach my mimimum goal - and every bit helps. I held a work-in-progress screening recently at the Museum of the City of New York, and I look forward to bringing the finished film to communities across the country in 2013. You can learn more about WORLD FAIR and my team and watch a 3-minute project video right here: http://kck.st/XojgEt Please consider making a contribution. I would be so grateful for your support!

  5. Hello All

    Hello All, My name is Jeff Ford, and I am new to the forum. My fascination with World's Fairs, or EXPOs, began around five years ago. I have made some earlier post under the topic of "looking for World's Fair films". The strange and twisting events that brought the continued presence of World's Fairs to my attention are documented in those posts. Alas, I am too young to have ever had the opportunity to attend a great American Fair. And, sadly, the US has no chance of hosting a small Expo until 2022, or a large Expo until 2025. So, until then we have to hit the road. I have attended the Zaragoza Expo in 2008, and the Shanghai Expo in 2010. I hope to get over to Yeosu in August, work schedule permitting. A friend and I are currently completing a feature-length film about the seeming cultural extinction of World's Fairs in American culture, and the US government's recent history of lackluster, or absolute non, participation in EXPOs. One of the more interesting opportunities we had during filming was traveling to London and meeting with the UK Commerce and Foreign office, and nearly all of the architects and designers selected as finalist for the 2010 UK pavilion. The fairness and good spirited competition of the UK process REALLY serves as a contrast to the US process. Hopefully we can help to turn the process around. It's great to have a contact point with fellow World's Fair fans. When our film is complete we'll figure out a way to share it with everyone. And we are still looking for 16mm motion picture film of Fairs. We have been HD scanning these films as we have located them, and the results have been great. So, if you have any 16mm or 35mm motion film that you would be willing to share for HD telecine, feel free to post a reply and we can get in touch. Best Regards, Jeff
