Canadian “Stories of Nice” by Wonderlust
Powered by the lyrics Irene Sankoff and David Hein (writers of the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit “Come From Away”) this rollicking love letter to Canada was created by Wonderlust in Halifax and features an array of animators and illustrators.
Director Ryan Rumbolt at Wonderlust: “Together [with Sankoff and Hein] we weaved a compelling story of Canada’s diverse people and languages, the beauty of our cities and communities, the historic milestones and scientific achievements born here.
“From the top of Niagara Falls to iconic and beloved delicacies from coast to coast to coast, This is Canada Nice reminds us of Canada’s distinct personality and offers inspiration to explore when the time is right.”
