Beschrijving Projecting America, 1958

The Brussels World's Fair was perhaps the most important propaganda event to be staged for European allies by the Eisenhower administration, an administration that viewed culture as a necessary weapon in the battle against communism. This examines how film played a pivotal role in the information war waged against the Soviets in the American pavilion at the fair.
