Circa 1948

An immersive art app, re-creating two post-war communities that no longer exist.

Enter the shadows of post-war Vancouver through this immersive interactive art app for iPad and iPhone co-created by internationally renowned artist Stan Douglas and the award winning NFB Digital Studio.

Discover two vibrant communities struggling through a time of unforgiving change. Though firmly rooted in the past, Circa 1948 ties economic recession to police corruption and the black market economy, and looks at how the social dynamics of poverty and wealth influence urban planning, relevant considerations in any age.

Produced by the National Film Board of Canada.
