London, England
Staging Canada at Expo67 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the most successful world’s fair of the 20th century with a 4-day event across London featuring films, live performance, and the latest research on Expo, Montreal, Quebec and Canada during that magical year of 1967. Highlights include the UK premiere of the ‘documentary-thriller’, Expo67: Mission Impossible, with director, Guylaine Maroist; screenings of classic Quebec films from the late 1960s; a 2-day international academic symposium on Expo67 and world exhibitions held at Senate House and King’s College London; and a newly commissioned performance of the forgotten multi-media masterpiece, Miracles of Modern Medicine, originally produced for Expo’s ‘Meditheatre’. The event will conclude with a special programme of innovative Expo films, most never before shown in the UK, at the BFI Southbank.
