Project Description:
Five filmmakers revisit Roman Kroitor’s In the Labyrinth, the landmark 5 screen projection from EXPO 67 in Montreal, which became the catalyst for today’s IMAX technology. Through digital production the filmmakers return to the labyrinth to explore contemporary life, technology and culture with almost 50 years of evolution since the original film.

The filmmakers approach is based on the original technical and thematic production, while also keeping in perspective the era of the film in relation to today, in particular its limitations and intent.
