Fourth Time’s the Charm

During the first week of Expo 67 Mission Impossible on the big screen, the film is sold out in three theaters and two languages.

Some drove up to 50 km to attend one of the showings, as the documentary thriller made its début at the box office last weekend.

People of all ages were at Cinéma du Parc for the English and French showings of the film. A large part of the crowd had been to Expo 67, either as visitors or employees. At Victoria Hall, in Westmount, Yves Jasmin and Diana Nicholson were on site for a Q & A after the projection. And Philippe de Gaspé Beaubien II phoned in to address and thank the crowd.

Filmmaker Éric Ruel also exchanged with the 300 citizens at Victoria Hall on Saturday evening, who had the chance to participate in an Expo 67 “open mic” in celebration of its 50th anniversary. The audience’s reaction to the film was pleasantly surprising. Every scene brought upon exclamations, acclamations, applause and even tears. “I’m still in shock at the impact the film has had,” says Éric Ruel, co-producer of the documentary.

Participants demonstrated great interest in the film being showed in their own regions, namely Hull and Sherbrooke. Happy to reunite around this shared passion, everyone wanted a DVD copy to bring home. The filmmakers, along with some of the main characters, are presenting the film in May in Trois-Rivières at the Cinéma Tapis Rouge, at Clap in Quebec and the Cinéma Lido in Lévis.

“Even though the room was full for the English showing of this film that highlights an event that transformed the country, it has yet to be picked up for National broadcast.

Anglophone radio stations, however, such as CBC and Bell Media, are talking about it throughout the country and people are looking to spread the positive message of Expo 67 Mission Impossible across Canada.

Calls are coming in from all provinces, DVDs are being ordered, people want to see the film, but so far, no national broadcaster has accepted to show it. The message is more relevant than ever as it’s Expo’s 50th anniversary, Montreal’s 375th and Canada’s 150th. I think it’s an occasion to celebrate History, be collectively inspired and move forward.” — Éric Ruel, Producer.

  1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

  3. One could almost come to the conclusion that you feel sorry for Europe, Greenfield 🙂 Why would Cameron raise the Armenien genocide with Erdogen, (as if that is something out of the ordinary in Europe, the continent is built upon genocide) when he didn't raise the Indian genocide with Obama?

  11. Wolwali, you should read the terms of service. Many providers expressly forbid the sharing of your login credentials with anyone (including Facebook).Even if Google doesn't, it isn't wise. How long does the other site store your login information? What happens if the other site is compromised?

  12. Yes, there are so many in the search engines where you can find but I would advise you as an advertiser to start building a good list of priority websites where you canPost Free Ads at some top 10 ranking sites such as ….Free Classifieds Directory,Best Online Classifieds,Community Classifieds,Biggest Classifiedsand etc.Examples of a list of good advertising sites are given in the source as per your question.Best of luck and cheers.

  13. the exact opposite, he says we’re better off, this from a guy who surpassed Buffalo Bob Rae’s reign of disaster as premier.Chalk it up to the usual Liberal attitude, heavily inflicted with delusions of grandeur he cannot take responsibility for his actions, it’s still the fault of Mike Harris.

  14. garfield 0  2Hallo der Herr “I+ Saftneger I-” aus Baaayern! Es gibt hier auf Cartoonland ein ungeschriebenes Gesetz:Dialekt ist verboten, weil dann der Rest der Nation: nixxe kappiere!! Ist auch für mich sehr schwer zu akzeptieren, aber es ist halt leider so.

  15. Toihan kuulostaa hyvälle, hömppää pienellä pimeydellä. Pitääpä muistaa katsoa tota tv-sarjaakin joskus, jos siinä olisi ihania brittimaisemia…Kiitos Jenni muuten kun kerroit siitä Tuula Mukan haastattelusta, ei vaivaa enää niin että miten hänelle kävi 🙂

  16. 我同意這是現實問題,的確不應過份流於理論。不過不知你有否遇過這個情況:有人覺得XX苦難事情很慘,很同情事主……不過很快就想,after all,苦難的存在「其實也不是一件壞事吧」(teleologically?)。我聽過有人宣之於口;相信不少人即使沒出聲,心裹也是這麼想。對不起又說理論了,不過我覺得這個跟現實相關。這是價值 (value) vs 可欲 (desirable) 的問題,不可欲的東西不一定沒有價值。聽過一位教授舉的例子:我認為D-Day時盟軍將士所作的犧牲很有價值,但不可欲 (I value their sacrifice, but I don’t desire it [in any order].)。這種心理大概也解釋了為何那麼多基督徒無視世間苦難,只顧傳「福」音吧?這層「價值」沖淡了他們改變苦難狀況的動機;他們就只集中於”love your neighbors as yourself”(真的只有neighbors而已)了。這暫時是我思考的瓶頸。當然,實際上,能夠聚集到一群不這樣想的人,再相互交流對話,已經很好了。而in the mean time,你就繼續做他們的輔導組大哥哥好了……呵……
