After the popular success of the short film on Expo 67 in Montreal, Castle Films returned to the world’s fair stage to create a 8mm short film for San Antonio’s World’s Fair titled: “HemisFair 1968 World’s Fair San Antonio, Texas”. Originally, the film was produced in full color, however, by the time I acquired a print of the 8mm movie in 2009 most of the color had faded.(Click on images for a closer look)

In 2008 students from SAY Si, an multidisciplinary arts program located in San Antonio, TX. created an informative 15 minute documentary on HemisFair ’68. (Click on the image to view the video)
