Looking forward to the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics in Paris, the Canadian Cultural Centre is offering a selection of films from the National Film Board of Canada collection.

On Tuesday, April 23 at 8pm, join us for the screening of the feature-length documentary “Games of the XXI Olympiad” by Jean-Claude Labrecque, Jean Beaudin, Marcel Carrière and Georges Dufaux: an immersion into the Montreal 1976 Olympic Games! Re-live, as if you were there, the Games of the XXI Olympiad, which brought fame to Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci.

Canada  / 1977 /  1 h 57 min
Production National Film Board of Canada

Edited from almost 100 km of film footage shot during the Games, this feature documentary is a breathtaking portrait of the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Much more than a simple record of the Games, the film approaches each event with the intention of revealing the athlete – whether winner or loser – as a unique individual.

In partnership with the National Film Board of Canada
This event is part of the programme for the Paris 2024 Cultural Olympiad.
