Rainbow War!

This was the last thing I posted right before the blogs got removed from Hypebeast.com – I don’t think many people got to see it so I wanted to post it again here. This film was created for Expo ’86 here in Vancouver and was nominated for an Academy Award. I remember having to watch this pretty much every year all the way through elementary school.

Fans of Whose Line is It Anyways might recognize Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie! This is right up there with Brazil as one of my favourite films from the 80’s. Actually there are quite a few similarities between this film and Brazil, although Brazil never had a trojan fire hydrant in it!

  • hahahha that’s another perfect example from that time period – childhood experiences that live on the ocean floor of your brain

    a couple weeks ago i started asking people if they remembered seeing this movie in elementary school. i did not remember this title and tried searching for something online, but was not able to find anything.

    by chance my friend’s bf showed her this posting and she thought of me.

    thanks for the trip!

  • no problem im glad you were able to stumble upon the post! – if you want to save the video you can go to keepvid.com and copy/paste the url into the window.

    i can’t believe you blogged this video. i have been trying to find it for the last month, i even called out to all my friend on the crackbook. probably one of my best memories in grade 3 was watching this video.

    thanks for the post. wow. so coincidental, it is scary.

  • haha i remembered it earlier this year and went on a mission – i was so determined to figure out what it was (i couldn’t remember the name even) i was seriously obsessed. i know the extreme satisfaction you are experiencing watching it now haha! if you go to keepvid.com you can copy/paste the url, download it and save it forever

  • Matt

    I’ve been looking for Rainbow War for forever. Is the movie still online somewhere?

    • i havent been able to find it again!
