The Janson Media DVD Expo: Magic of the White City was recommended in a recent review on the Blogger News Network. Much like Chicago World’s Fair attendees Henry Ford and Frank Lloyd Wright were before him, the film’s reviewer Simon Barrett was truly inspired by the documentary film on this historic event. In his review Barrett sites the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893 as a key turning point in the country’s era of innovation. Narrated by Gene Wilder, the DVD of Expo: Magic of the White City is available now.  The program is also available to worldwide Television, VOD, New Media, and Non-Theatric markets.

Expo: The Magic of The White City is a wonderful documentary. If you love history, this is a fabulous snapshot of an event that has long been forgotten. I would love to see some teachers buy this DVD and show it in their history class. The 1893 World’s Fair represents a very important part of our social history.

Expo: Magic of the White City brings the Chicago World’s Fair to life. Experience the world of 1893 through a cinematic visit to Chicago’s Columbian Exposition.  Nearly 28 million people visited the Fair. Dubbed the “White City,” it inspired future innovators like Henry Ford and Frank Lloyd Wright, unveiled the Ferris Wheel and Cracker Jack®, and, in many ways, marked the beginning of the 20th century. Against the backdrop of 1893’s troubles with workers’ rights, prejudice, discrimination and corruption, the World’s Colombian Exposition cast a brief ray of hope for the future of humanity.

Filmed in spectacular High-Definition, Expo: Magic of the White City immerses viewers in one of the world’s biggest extravaganzas and one of the most unforgettable events in American history. There will never be another event like it… or will there?
