Cité Mémoire: A Projection about Montreal Across Time
Cité Mémoire – Cité Mémoire is one of the biggest evening projections in the world. The projections are inspired by Montreal’s history and culture, and shows archive pictures and films of the evolution of the city. Created by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon in collaboration with Michel Marc Bouchard, this projection in Montreal’s old town, takes you back in time to witness key figures and moments of Montreal’s making.
Over 20 different portraits will be projected onto buildings, streets and even trees to share the history of the city. Some projections will be animated with music, words, effects, and much more. The portraits testify on the one hand of important events in the history of Montreal, of well known people who lived there, and even of the ways older generations used to live in Montreal. These portraits express the importance of the values of living together, of innovation, of tolerance and generosity that have made Montreal what it is today.
