An epic cinematic thriller, Expo 67: Mission Impossible stars the true “Mad Men” of Montréal, who pulled together the 1967 world’s fair. The organizers had only 1,628 days to build an island, 128 pavilions, 3 bridges and trains capable of transporting tens of millions of visitors. A computer modelling team at the Stanford Research Institute predicted failure. The first organizing committee resigned. Speculators started getting edgy. Decision-makers in Ottawa and Québec City were reluctant to cough up the cash for a one-time event that would cost more than all the bridges in Montréal. No other 20th century world’s fair caused such a stir in its host country and around the globe. Expo 67: Mission Impossible recounts how the powerful artistic direction team exploited cutting-edge ideas and technology to make the event a success.
