Oh Canada!

Great animation from 1978 gives you an idea what we look like here in Canada. I think  the face at the 28-second mark is pretty close to my face, just imagine a smaller nose, gold fronts, and an eye patch.

My friend Andre posted this video and it made me want to go back and find all the other great films  that the Nation Film Board has produced over the years.

After a little bit of digging around I discovered the NFB has archived 70 animated films! You can watch all the classics like: The Sweater, The Cat Came Back and Log Driver’s Waltz.

  • the face video is so cool,

    going to the NFB used to be on tops of my favourite things to do while I had nothing to do. Now that I don’t work on Queen st. anymore I don’t find myself there quite as much. Perhaps I should get back at it.
