William Canning, Ontario, 1967, 10 min The best of the 1967 National Hockey League season, set to music in the Tijuana Brass style and filmed with an eye to grace and style of movement suggestive of the bull ring as well as the hockey arena My Winnipeg (excerpt 'Heartsick Architecture'), Dir.

Guy Maddin was born in one of its dressing rooms and grew up around the Canadian olympic teams of the 1960s and other historic and triumphant players and games that require remembering before the the Arena is destroyed.
