A FILM ABOUT THE FINNISH PAVILION IN THE PARIS WORLD FAIR OF 1900

Researchers and students at the Department of Media in the School of Arts, Design, and Architecture at Aalto University have created "Le Pavilion de la Finlande à l’exposition universelle de 1900 à Paris", a film that brings together archival materials with computer generated imagery in order to render a simulation of the Pavilion of Finland and the 1900 World Exposition in Paris. The documentary, that is 8:30 minutes long, will be shown at Musèe d’Orsay in Paris, France in the Akseli Gallen Kallela, A Passion for Finland exhibition beginning February 7 until May 6, 2012.
