Expo: Magic of the White City

This documentary about the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago is the perfect companion to the book The Devil in the White City. While the latter's serial murderer is never mentioned in the documentary, the visual splendor of the Fair is portrayed in a detailed and awesome manner on the screen.
The view of the publishing business that emerges in this documentary is very different than the one you see if all you know is, Borders, and C-SPAN's BookTV. Here you see charismatic young publishers betting the farm to bring fringe and suppressed book to light while battling the forces of "mainstream media" that at all turns seem to be resisting and twisting "the truth."
