PHILADELPHIA, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Filmmaker brings the 1964-65 NY World's Fair back to life
If you have a favorite new tech gadget you love, you can thank the 1964 New York World's Fair, according to one documentary filmmaker.
Ritchey is releasing a documentary this summer that looks at the legacy of the 1964-65 New York World's Fair, and how it affects our lives today, over 50 years later.
"What's really intriguing about this fair, is although it was largely demolished nearly 50 years ago, in many ways, it is still with us today," Ritchey said. Ritchey noted that from pop culture to technology, the fair still resonates today.
"Think about Skype or Facetime or any other video conference service. Those are direct descendants of the Bell Picturephone that premiered at the fair," Ritchey said. "In pop culture, you see the fair referenced in Iron Man 2, Men In Black, even The Simpsons, and back to The Flintstones," Ritchey said.
"After The Fair" mixes archival footage of the fair, with the modern day locations of many of the relics, and interviews with attraction designers, historians, and pop culture creators, like Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld.
The first six minutes of the movie are posted at http://www.worldsfairmovie.com. The film is available for pre-order and will be released this summer.
