Mission Expo

A playlist by the NFB

Expo 67, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017, generated thousands of miles of film. Among the archival material that really gives you a sense of place is Impressions of Expo by William Brind, produced by the NFB.

Through Brind’s editing, transport yourself aboard the Expo-Express, a helicopter and even Expo’s hovercraft to discover the scale of the Expo 67 site. During this journey, Habitat 67 is front-and-center: a must-see on the Expo-Express route, Habitat was also located very close to the hovercraft base on the Cité-du-Havre. Even today, you can still see parts of its launch pad.

“An eight-minute wordless trip through Expo 67 replete with groovy 1960s music! You will see the USSR’s pavilion, the Monorail, Habitat 67, the American pavilion, a hovercraft, the Katimavik, and some creepy clowns. A perfect way to get a feel for what Expo was all about. The nostalgia factor is through the roof.”

– A. Ohayon (ONF)
