Movie Info

Olivia, Minnesota is home to the world's largest ear of corn. Stop in Ashburn, Georgia and you can see the world's biggest peanut. If you want to have a snapshot taken next to the world's largest killer bee, plan a trip to Hidalgo, Texas. All of these small towns have created giant replicas of commonplace things in a bid to bring travelers to their community in the hopes they'll stick around long enough to spend some money, and filmmakers Amy Elliott and Elizabeth Donius offers a bittersweet look at these overgrown tourist traps in the documentary World's Largest. The film visits dozens of cities where the economy is in a doldrums and civic boosters have created a massive public sculpture in hopes of attracting the attention of a world that no longer cares much for Middle America's main streets. Elliott and Donius also drop in on Soap Lake, Washington, where a number of locals are trying to pull together a project to construct the world's biggest Lava Lamp. World's Largest received its world premiere at the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival.
