We're All Going to the World's Fair

Jane Schoenbrun | US | 86

"I want to go to the World’s Fair. I want to go to the World’s Fair. I want to go to the World’s Fair." Say it three times into your computer camera. Prick your finger, draw some blood and smear it on the screen. Now press play on the video. They say that once you’ve seen it, the changes begin...

In a small town, a shy and isolated teenage girl (Anna Cobb in a stunning feature debut) becomes immersed in an online role-playing game. Courtesy of Utopia. Presented in partnership with Museum of the Moving Image and New York Hall of Science.

The Craft

Monira Al Qadiri | Kuwait | 16

The Craft is a film that revolves around childish fictions laced with serious suspicions towards the real world. Using the lens of family history, the film dissects the artist’s own past to reexamine an uncanny relationship taking place in the shadows of her major life events: “Were my parents conspiring with aliens behind my back?” Reality gradually disintegrates like quicksand around this central question, as paranoia and speculation begin to take hold. Futuristic architecture, popular culture, dream readings, junk food, alien abductions, geopolitics, international diplomacy, war and peace; all of these once solid staples of modern life now become tinted with a general sense of distrust, overshadowing everything. Like a ticking time bomb at the center of the nuclear family unit, the suspicion reaches a crescendo when the protagonist suddenly discovers that the American century has finally ended.

Nora Štrbová | Czech Republic | 8

Simon Štrba is a 23-year-old whose short-term memory has been completely destroyed. He thinks events that took place a year ago happened yesterday. He looks at his empty plate, having forgotten that he just finished eating. This poignant and cleverly crafted animated film is based on the personal story of the brother of the filmmaker Nora Štrbová. His memory centers were damaged by a brain tumor, and now he lives exclusively in the here and now.

Q&A with filmmaker Jane Schoenbrun and actor Anna Cobb
How will it work?
Bring your ticket (either printed or on your phone) and our team will check your tickets with a contactless check in scanner, respecting social distancing guidelines. Before your arrival, we will ask you to make sure you can answer “no” to all of the CDC’s COVID-19 safety screening questions. Upon arrival we will do a mandatory temperature check, unless you prefer to provide proof of vaccination. Seating will be arranged in pods (up to 4 people) so that you may sit together with your group, but remain socially distanced from those not in your group. Chairs will be provided in groups of two and four. Masks will be required while interacting with event staff.

Will there be parking?
For this event, seating will be outdoors and not drive-in, so you won’t be able to watch the film from your car for this event. However, if you would like to drive to the screening, there will be free parking on site in the New York Hall of Science visitor parking lot.

Can I bring food and drinks?
All attendees will receive complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages—though you may bring your own, if you'd like! No alcoholic beverages are allowed. Food and drink must be consumed while you are sitting in your designated area.

I’m vaccinated, do I need to wear a mask?
All attendees and staff are required to wear a mask while interacting. You will also be reminded of the mandatory safety measures via email and on screen.

What COVID-19 Measures Have Been Taken?
Our guests and our team’s safety is our primary concern. Our COVID-19 safety measures include social distancing for both guests and staff, regular cleaning of all facilities, and contact-free check-in. All attendees and staff are required to wear a mask while interacting. You will also be reminded of the mandatory safety measures via email and on-screen. You may sit in your pod with up to 4 people, but we ask that you remain socially distanced from anyone not in the group you have chosen to sit with.
