In the Labyrinth

IN THE LABYRINTH was created as a multi-screen presentation for Chamber III of the Labryinth at Expo '67 in Montreal. A film without commentary in which multiple images, sometimes complementary, sometimes contrasting, draw the viewer through the different stages of a labyrinth. The tone of the film moves from great joy to wrenching sorrow; from stark simplicity to ceremonial pomp. It is life as it is lived by the people of the world, each one, as the film suggests, in a personal labyrinth. This gigantic audiovisual presentation, with 35mm and 70mm images projected onto multiple screens, became the precursor to the IMAX format. The film was reissued in 1979 in a single-screen format that was 21 minutes long.
