A mega production created in 2008 for the Québec City’s 400th anniversary, the Image Mill is back for a second edition this summer. This time, Robert Lepage and Ex-Machina promise to wow audiences with even more sophisticated concepts and mind-blowing new visual effects. Over 20% of the content will be reworked and improved, or enhanced with new material.
Representing the largest projection ever done, the Image Mill earned a place in the 2008 Guinness book of world records. The equivalent of 25 IMAX screens, over 600 meters wide and 30 meters tall, the grain silos of the Quebec Harbour found a new purpose. On top of this gigantic showpiece, the image diffused has a definition that surpasses HD quality, a cutting-edge technology being used.
The Image Mill transports us in a journey of four centuries where we discover the fascinating history of Quebec City with its upheavals, its controversies, and its great political and popular moments.
The 2009 edition of the Image Mill will run from July 3 until September 13, Wednesday to Sunday. From July 19 to August 2, the projection of about 40 minutes will be presented seven nights a week.
