This short animation attempts to show the landscape of Canadians through a series of transforming faces -- young, old and from many different backgrounds, illustrating the great variety of people living in the country.

Using a series of drawn images, this clever one-minute film simply shows that whether we are Black, White, Inuit, woman, man or child, we are all Canadian. Former prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau even makes a cameo appearance!

    I always loved this as a kid! So glad to find it here. Does anyone know who the flautist is that was playing the fugue?

    The music is an arrangement of the finale chorale of Bach's Cantata BWV 161.

    I haven't seen this is years and years... it still works for me. Its good to see that not everything goes obsolete in 5 years.

    Does anyone recognize the fugue? I looked in the credits to see if it was a Bach fugue - I don't see any reference to it.
