Event Description

Full Description:
Documentaries are understood as films that represent reality and provide some form of historical record of the world at a particular time and place. My presentation examines a time and place in Canadian history that witnessed an inordinately vigorous rate of production of documentary films about sport. In the 1960s, the National Film Board of Canada produced 37 films that examined sport from an intriguing range of perspectives. Within this, one group of films standout because of who directed them, the use of aesthetic and technical innovation and how they treated sport as a documentary subject. These films were produced by a group of culturally and politically like-minded French-Canadian (Québécois) filmmakers known as l’équipe française.

Dr Douglas A. Brown is the Dean of the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management at the University of Manitoba, Canada. His research has focused on the origins of the Modern Olympic Games, early Canadian Mountaineering and winter sports.
