Taking place on Thursday, March 12 at 7:00 pm at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, four films will explore the concept of the city as an expansive play surface.

Pedestrians, a red balloon, skateboarders in Westmount, and a concrete schoolyard give rise to vital urban activities and recreations. The films that capture these ideas and images are Walking by Ryan Larkin, Le Ballon Rouge by Albert Lamorisse, The Devil’s Toy by Claude Jutra and Blacktop: A Story of the Washing of a School Play Yard by the Charles & Ray Eames Office.

Admission is free to these films. For more information, please visit or call 514.939.7026.
