This year marks the 100th anniversary of The Calgary Stampede. To celebrate the occasion, and their sponsorship of the Stampede, TransAlta takes you back 100 years to 1912 in “The Demo”.
Directed by Wayne Craig, the film takes the viewer on a magical and nostalgic journey to The Stampede as it was in 1912.
Shot through the POV of a young boy, the visually-driven narrative is full of awe and wonder as we travel with him through the Stampede grounds, passing a fire eater and a knife juggler, into an exhibition tent where a crowd has gathered with great anticipation. They are there to witness something something from the future – an electricity demo. It’s magical.
