Desperate for tourism, hundreds of small towns across the U.S. claim "world's largest" things, from 15-foot fiberglass strawberries to 40-foot concrete pheasants. World's Largest visits 58 such sites and profiles Soap Lake, Washington’s five-year struggle to build the World’s Largest Lava Lamp. By documenting these roadside attractions, World’s Largest captures the changing, perhaps even vanishing, culture of small-town America. Following a screening of her feature film, World’s Largest, Co-director Amy Elliott and the audience will engage in a discussion about the film and her work as a filmmaker. A reception with the filmmaker is scheduled for after the film, as well. Both film and reception are FREE and open to the public.
