"I want to go to the world's fair… I want to go to the world's fair…" Utopia has revealed the official trailer for an indie horror thriller titled We're All Going to the World's Fair, made by trans filmmaker Jane Schoenbrun. This originally premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival last year, and stopped by a bunch of other festivals including New Directors/New Films, Fantasia, Outfest, Rooftop Films, and many others. A teenage girl becomes immersed in an online role-playing game. Starring Anna Cobb as Casey, Michael J. Rogers and Holly Anne Frink. Critics say that the film has a power to pull you into its ways. "It's a strong debut for both Schoenbrun and Cobb, capturing a profound sense of contemporary adolescent loneliness that many artists have tried (and failed) to portray on screen."
