Online NFB films (launched 1 year ago) are LOVED by many!

I am so proud to be a Canadian and a long time lover of National Film Board (NFB) films. Quoting “One year after putting NFB films online – Here are the stats…

NFB is seriously cool, keep up the great work NFB.

The most popular film in 2009 is “A Sunday at 105, (13:20) with 155,183 views“. After watching the film, I don’t think anyone can resist the charming 105 years old leading lady! Here is the synopsis of “A Sunday at 105“,

A 105 year old Acadian agrees to be filmed one Sunday as she goes about her daily routine and ruminates on life. Filmed by her great-grandson, Aldéa Pellerin-Cormier comments wisely on politics, sex and religion. From getting ready in the morning to drinking her nightcap before bed, every moment is punctuated with a witticism or existential thought. Respectful of the old woman’s privacy, Daniel Léger’s first documentary looks at wisdom, serenity and enjoyment of life. In French with English subtitles.”
