CYPRESS, Calif. – January 31, 2017- The celebrated Festival of Lights from Lyon in southeast France took a trip outside its national borders for a reprise in Quito, Ecuador, as part of the Habitat III United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development. And Christie® 3DLP® projectors played a major role in the event by powering two spectacular projection mappings on the facades of the La Merced and the Santo Domingo churches.

Thousands of people turned out at night in the streets of the old quarters of Quito to see the Festival of Lights, a fantastic animation show on the walls of seven historic heritage buildings, including the two churches. This was the first time the festival was staged in Latin America, thanks to a joint initiative supported by the cities of Quito and Lyon, Alianza Francesa, plus six French and Ecuadorian artists.
