Very interesting history of Canadian design
13 July 2018 | by nick_bedellSee all my reviews

Inspiring and intelligent discussion of commercial art, design aesthetics, and the history of Canada and it's people. Well-crafted narrative supported with an amazing musical score, and of course, it's peppered throughout with the brilliant visual designs the doc is built around.
