Synopsis

Period-piece documentary originally made for the 1939 New York World's Fair ('The World of Tomorrow'), with a newly-recorded music score by Aaron Copland. The film, scripted by city planner Lewis Mumford, advocates the benefits of garden city planning and presents suburbia as an idyllic alternative to gritty urban life.
