Film on 1939 World's Fair at Weston Library
Published 5:05 pm, Thursday, September 22, 2011
The Friends of the Weston Public Library will present "I Have Seen the Future," a documentary on the 1939 World's Fair, 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25, at the library, 56 Norfield Road.
The film aims to show how the fair led America and the world down a road of mass consumerism and a future dependent on the motorcar and the fuel to keep it going.
Lisa Seidenberg, the film's director, will be available to talk with attendees after the film. Seidenberg, a recipient of several grants, commissions and festival awards, is a two-time winner of the Artist Fellowship Award in Film/Video from the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism and CEC/Partners grant.
Reservations are not required for the free event, but attendees are requested to email the Friends of Weston Library at email@example.com before arriving.
