Video: Where were you in ’67?

Yes we drag out a movie from my past, from the NFB, Impressions of Expo 67.

I am astounded at the clarity of this film and thank heavens for the NFB, as I view Expo 67 as a “mile marker” in my life even though I was only 6 years old at the time.

I love the description from the NFB:

This short film served as an invitation to the World’s Fair that was held in Montreal in 1967. It was largely considered to be the most successful World’s Fair of the 20th century with over 50 million visitors. The film presents impressions of the event and of Montreal at its liveliest and most exciting moment in history.

After Expo 67 the exhibition went on for a few more years as Man and His World and my family went every year pretty much, and LaRonde the amusement park is still in operation. Certainly a mile marker for Canada as well.
