Melancholy Palace of Fine Arts – Trailer

On February 20, 1915, San Francisco was a host to the Panama-Pacific International Exposition world fair. Today, the only structure remains from the fair is the Palace of Fine Arts.

Using falling rain to represents “sadness of life without arts”, we created a film “Melancholy Palace of Fine Arts” to commemorate 100 years of PPIE.
