Multiple Man

Multiple Man

A many-faced view of humanity, of global man in all his forms and interests. Produced originally in 70 mm (with stereophonic sound) for showing at Man and His World, the Montréal fair that succeeded Expo 67, this film employs the multi-image technique. People of all places, origins, cultures, secular and religious, are here united and seen side by side, creating an impressive, inspiring and challenging portrait. The film's title appears in seven languages. Film without words.

"Technically, this is not an Expo 67 film, since it was produced for the Man and His World exhibition which subsequently took over the Expo site until 1981. This production was shot on 70mm for multi-screen projection. It’s a mishmash of images, dealing with everything from innovation to poverty to automation. There’s also some choice archival footage of the many, crazy flying contraptions produced in the early 20th century--and some pretty far-out ’60s robots." - A. Ohayon
