A CPTV Original production, The 1964 World’s Fair is an extraordinary documentary that takes a fresh look at the sights and sounds of this once-in-a-lifetime event. Actor Judd Hirsch narrates this engaging homage to planner Robert Moses’ dream. Combining black-and-white and color archival footage shot at the fair, along with contemporary interviews with adults who recall their childhood experience, this nostalgic view is sure to trigger fond memories in viewers. Public television producer Rich Hanley draws on the delightful memories of fairgoers who found hope for the future, an understanding of other cultures, and a Belgian waffle for just a dollar.
