A film showing the transformation of a nation from a colonial outpost to a vibrant, multicultural society

  • MCA Chicago

What defines a national identity, is it an anthem? A flag? Is it a logo or icon? How do these elements shape who we are? In the 60s and 70s, these questions were answered by an innovative group of Canadian designers, who used design to unify the nation.

Design Canada is the first documentary chronicling the history of Canadian graphic design and how it shaped a nation and its people.

This screening will be followed by Q&A with Filmmaker Greg Durrell.
