USA Expo film goes online

PEOPLE will be able watch the centerpiece movie of the USA Pavilion at the World Expo 2010 online as the pavilion presented the movie to China to thank the host country for its help during the Expo.

The high-definition version of the eight-minute urban fairy tale movie "The Garden" is also available on China's Internet Protocol TV, or IPTV.

The pavilion wanted to let those who had not visited the pavilion see its most popular exhibit, the pavilion's press officer said.

The movie was voted the most popular part of the pavilion by more than 77 percent of its visitors, according to a survey by Shanghai's Fudan University.

The movie weaved 4D effects in the 6,000-square-meter pavilion, like wind and rain, into the story.

It was played on five 10-meter-tall screens shaped like tall buildings.

In the story, a nine-year-old girl plants flowers to turn an abandoned vacant lot in a city into a garden, and her passion and determination inspire her neighbors, who create the flourishing garden together.

At the end, a city that was once tired and gray is transformed.

The story highlights the importance of achieving common goals through cooperation, and shows that the world's nations can work together to create a beautiful future, said Bob Rogers, the main creator of the movie.

The movie has no dialogue, only moving images, music and sound.
