expo 67 links to the National Film Board and their extension selection of films.
Here’s a impressionistic and nostalgic look at Montreal’s Expo 67. The 8.5 minute wordless film - directed by William Brind - shows the expo as an exercise in wonderful urban naiveté and optimism.

From the film’s description:
This 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.
It brings back a lot of memories.

Nice camera work and editing...the quality of film is amazing - my guess techi-colour.

Did you catch the brand new flag - the maple leaf?

I was there but I was only 11.
