On Sunday, March 15, the Museum of Work & Culture will present the second installment of its Cinema Sunday series with a screening of the Québecois documentary, Expo 67: Mission Impossible. The film will be shown at 1:30pm with English subtitles.

The documentary thriller Expo 67 Mission Impossible invites us to relive the incredible adventure of the men behnd 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 Éric 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.

Cinema Saturdays is presented as part of the MoWC’s celebration of Francophonie, a monthlong celebration of French language and culture in New England. It is made possible with the support of the Québec Delegation in Boston.
