Feature Documentary / Long Beach Premiere / Filmmaker Q&A

An idealistic American architect struggles to help her dream alive as she journeys to discover why America abandoned World’s Fairs.

USA | 57 min. | Dir. Mina Chow, AIA

Probing deeply into national identity, architect Mina Chow investigates the controversy surrounding US participation at World’s Fairs for the last 25 years. The film asks important questions about the country’s role in the world and perceptions of the American image. With our diminished presence at World’s Fairs, have we lost sight of what it means to be American?
