Canada the Land

Canada the Land

Filmed for the most part from a low-flying aircraft, this documentary short presents a breathtaking view of Canada from coast to coast. Showing the varied terrain, from craggy coast to towering glacier, the film illustrates Canada’s pristine wilderness as well as today's industrial and urban realities.

Canada the Land was specially commissioned for the Canada Pavilion at the Osaka World Fair in 1970.
