The World of Tomorrow 
with writer John Crowley

The 1939 World's Fair, in New York, was an epoch-breaking event. Its optimism and faith in technology marked the symbolic end of the Great Depression, yet it ushered in the technological horrors of World War II.  The World of Tomorrow bridges the two eras, elegantly combining home movies, corporate & government propaganda films, and a wry, first-person narration by Jason Robards.

 
It was written by noted novelist John Crowley, now a Senior Lecturer in English at Yale University.  He will join us via Skype after the screening.
 
 
(1984) 83 minutes.
