Who Are We?

Who Are We?

| 9 min

This short animation takes us on a humorous tour through the varied phases and faces of Canadian history, but the goal of defining a national identity doesn’t prove simple. The film sees Canadians as pragmatists, adaptable to whatever circumstances they encounter. It’s a boisterous, bubbling analysis of the Canadian character and although it may not answer the question of the film’s title, it certainly has fun trying.
