"an understated work of stupefying grace" - Globe and Mail
****************WINNER OF 2 WEBBY AWARDS****************
Imagine your hometown never changed. That no one ever grew old or moved on. Part book, part film, part family photo album, Welcome to Pine Point unearths a place frozen in time and discovers what happens when an entire community is erased from the map.

Designed exclusively for iPad. A unique interactive reading experience using photographs, interviews, video clips and soundtrack to create an immersive compelling nostalgic narrative.

Soundtrack written and performed by the Besnard Lakes.

The project was co-created by the Goggles (Michael Simons and Paul Shoebridge formerly from Adbusters) and the NFB Digital Studio Vancouver (Bear 71, Seven Digital Deadly Sins, Circa 1948, The Last Hunt).

Produced by The National Film Board of Canada.
The original interactive documentary for the web is available at http://pinepoint.nfb.ca/

Supported: iOS 7+, iPad 2+
