Multi-Image Films at Expo '70: A Trip Report.
Bretz, Rudy
Of two-dozen pavilions at Expo 70 visited and observed for their film presentations, in only one case was the film displayed on a single screen of standard shape. This exception was the Russian three-dimensional film. All the other films were shown on wide screens or multiple screens. Screens were side-by-side, above and below each other, facing each other across a stage, flat on the floor, composed of lenses, and composed of smoke. They were square, triangular, round, hemispherical, and spherical. Screens were reflected by giant mirrors into infinity--before, behind, upward and downward. Multi-image projection was used with varying degrees of effectiveness. Rotatable panels and electroluminescent panels were used. Audiences viewed the films walking through pavilions or riding through them or sitting down. The spectacular film projections were accompanied by spectacular sound, coming from all possible directions. In addition, the wide use of synthesizer music brought many new sounds to the ear. Besides visiting Expo 70, the author met with the television producer and head of English language teaching at Nippon Hoso Kyokai (NHK). A Summary is given of NHK's accomplishment in teaching English. (MF)
