This film was found in the basement of a vacating business in Rochester, New York in 2004. The decomposition of the emulsion, combined with the vivid color and movements of the carnival rides, creates a beautiful film reminiscent of the work of filmmakers Peter Delpeut and Bill Morrison. Also available on the DVD "Living Room Cinema: Films From Home Movie Day, Vol. I"

If you thought the Atlanta Aquarium was great, you have not seen anything yet. This smaller aquarium is considered by many to be one of the best Aquariums in the USA. See Tiger Sharks, Manta Rays, EELS, Jellyfish, Piranha, and lots of other varieties of slat and Freshwater creatures, Also at this Aquarium at the time this footage was recorded, see the Mars Rover.
