This documentary, by Guylaine Maroist, Michel Barbeau and Eric Ruel, invites us to relive the incredible adventure of the men behind Man and His World. Over time, tongues have loosened and the full story can now emerge, just like Notre-Dame Island out of the waters of the St. Lawrence. Thanks to unprecedented access to over 80,000 archival documents, along with uncensored accounts by the movers and shakers behind this success story, filmmakers Guylaine Maroist, Michel Barbeau and Eric Ruel invite us to relive the white-knuckle countdown to the grand opening on April 28, 1967. We finally recognize the exceptional contribution of the makers of Expo 67, namely Chief of Advertising Yves Jasmin, and businessman Philippe de Gaspé Beaubien.

“I laughed, I shed tears – this is one of the films that has most affected me in my life.” – Serge Postigo

This documentary on Expo 67 is a pure masterpiece! Bravissimo!!!Gilbert Rozon

EXPO 67 MISSION IMPOSSIBLE has been made possible by a collaboration between Productions de la Ruelle and Library and Archives Canada.

Productions de la Ruelle is a company that has been working for 15 years on the production of feature-length documentary films, series and other documentary content. Driven with conviction by producers Guylaine Maroist and Eric Ruel, Productions de la Ruelle reveal to the world the other side of History. With the award-winning series J’ai la mémoire qui tourne, the artisans took on the mission of preserving our collective memory by aligning multiple generations through the safeguarding of amateur cinematographic heritage, commonly referred to as home videos.

Rigorously questioning scientific and democratic issues, they’ve also given us shock documentary Gentilly Or Not to Be (winner of two Gemini awards) and the documentary Time Bombs (winner of the Golden Ribbon Award for best Canadian documentary and of the Grand Jury Prize at the NYC Independent Film Festival). The multimedia production company has won several awards, including numerous Gemini awards, the Grand Boomerang Prize in 2009, the Governor General’s History Award (Pierre-Berton Award in 2011) and the Grand Jury Prize – VIFFF d’Or in Switzerland in 2015. www.productionsdelaruelle.com
