The National Film Board of Canada recently put their archives online. And wow – there is a ton of amazing footage and films to be found. You can watch for free online and then order anything you’d like to have forever.

Here’s a link to  one of many, with the Description from the site. (grr wordpress, please let me inbed this video!)

Very Nice, Very Nice

Arthur Lipsett, 1961, 6 min 59 s

Arthur Lipsett’s first film is an avant-garde blend of photography and sound. It looks behind the business-as-usual face we put on life and shows anxieties we want to forget. It is made of dozens of pictures that seem familiar, with fragments of speech heard in passing and, between times, a voice saying, “Very nice, very nice.” It was was critically acclaimed and plays frequently in festivals and film schools around the world.
