Together for the first time on DVD, these 36 vintage gems are from the NFB Canada Vignettes series, which marked a whole generation of Canadians who grew up with television. Made in the late seventies and early eighties, these very short animated films and documentaries introduced us to different aspects of our country’s rich history and culture. Who can forget such classics as Faces, Delta Plane, Log Driver’s Waltz and Trading Post? These short films feature subtle humour and remain surprisingly fresh despite being over 30 years old. Make yourself comfortable as you take a trip down memory lane with quick lessons in Canadian history (Fort Prince of Wales, Bill Miner) and portraits of Canadian personalities (Roger Doucet, Stunt Family).
