    The world goes black and in the distance we hear the creaks and cries of friction sparking between steel limbs. Our eyes abruptly aggravated by light weaving in and out, pulsating. A whistle blow s. passionate, moving towards the future, the steam engine speeds past . . . .

    Le Moulin à Images is a forty-minute sensorial journey through the history of Québec. The production, the largest historic projection in the world, is set upon a monolithic stage measuring 600 meters in length, composed of 81 concrete grain silos, each 30 meters high, in the Port of Québec City. Through waterways, the age of exploration and discovery; road building, clearing and developing the land; the railroad and industrial expansion; and finally, the age of air travel and the development of communications the observer is left with an impressionistic mosaic built upon 400 years of history + self discovery.
