EXPO67-17 - Oral Histories
Inspired by his own experience and the films of Expo-67 Kirk Bennett directs a film
employing interviews and archival footage along with unique material of his own,
focusing on the experiences of those who were there and others who’s lives and
attitudes have been impacted by history’s most successful World’s Fair.
The film features a very uinique film-score and avant-
garde filming/editing techniques to bring together
today’s advances in film technology and archival
materials from Expo-67. He combines numerous styles
of media including journalism and experimental film to
shine a unique perspective on the “Expo-experience.”
“For several years I’ve been shooting and preparing
background data to decide how best to address the subject matter of the film,
and having listened to many people’s desire for a living document about Expo-67,
the result is EXPO67-17. People want something for posterity, a vehicle to tell
their stories of the amazing experience of Expo-67.”
