Canada’s Diverse Cultures

A selection by Albert Ohayon

Canada Vignettes: Faces

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.

From the playlist : Canada’s Diverse Cultures

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!
