27 projectors, 40,000,000 pixels, 25 km of optic fiber, 100 moving heads an 300 loudspeakers to celebrate Quebec's culture and history.
Its funny because before came to Quebec, I had studied history in many different ways. History classes were like a different remix each wilder than the one before of the same 3000 years in Bulgarian, Spanish and German primary schools. By the time I got to high-school I was living with a baggage of milleniums worth of contradictions.
Quebec's the total opposite. Its by far the shortest and the sweetest history I ever got to learn. You only study it for one year (Secondaire 4), bypassing all kinds of atrocities from Mongolian invasions, Middle Ages, World Wars, Cold Wars and what have you of horror material haunting the nightmares of underaged Europeans.
Quebec's history is the unbearable lightness to be enjoyed every summer evening through sophisticated outdoor multimedia projections. How can you not love it!
