FACE of a Nation – Film Teaser – Shanghai’s Expo 2010 Closes. Did Your Country Show A Good Face? Did the U.S.?

A film production from USC School of Architecture and USC School of Cinematic Arts gives us this provocative film teaser to FACE of a Nation. The team, composed of USC Professor/Architect Mina Chow, architecture journalist Edward Lifson, USC Cinema’s Norman Hollyn, and documentary producer/filmmaker Alessandra Pasquini, probes the concept of “face” in Chinese culture and whether country pavilions successfully represented themselves to the world and China. The final film is slated for completion next year.

KCRW’s Frances Anderton provides a good summary of the expo and the U.S. situation at her DnA blog.
Did your country represent well? Did the U.S.?  Give us your opinion and thoughts.
