In an adventure of giant proportions, Tiny Giants reveals the astonishing lives of the smallest of animals. With jaw-dropping drama, this pioneering film reveals the great courage and skill essential to the success of our miniature heroes in their titanic battle for survival.

Facing experienced rivals and huge predators, our chipmunk hero must find the courage to gather enough acorns for winter. Forced out of the family home, our adolescent grasshopper mouse is then swept away in a flash flood. He needs to learn the skills to survive and lay claim to his own patch of desert as he becomes an adult.

Only by using their ingenious superpowers can our heroes not only stay alive but also become masters of their universe.

Expo 67: Mission Impossible

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.
