Quebec City's 400th Anniversary

Ex Machina and E/T/C Paris use Christie digital projectors to create the world's largest video projection display wall for Quebec City's 400th Anniversary

Throughout the summer, Québec City is hosting international events that relate to its history and culture.

From June 20 to August 24, the Image Mill – a sound and image spectacular created by Robert Lepage and Ex Machina with E/T/C Paris – provided a visual display of the history of Québec during the summer festivities. The Image Mill recounted the history of the city with what is believed to be the world’s longest video projection display.

Each evening at sundown, on the banks of the Bassin Louise in Québec’s Old Port, 81 Bunge company grain silos were transformed into an immense projection screen – the ultimate in widescreen viewing. The Image Mill was visible from many vantage points, including across the St. Lawrence River.
