O Canada

Directed by Evelyn Lambart
Canada, 1952
Animation, Short


An animated adaptation of Canada’s national anthem that takes a 3D trip across the country from coast to coast. It features the “traveling zoom” invented by Norman McLaren in 1937 — a technique later adapted to create the star-gate sequence in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
