    Professor Landon Mackenzie has had a long relationship with Emily Carr University – she began teaching visual arts at the institution in 1986, and has seen it grow through several official designations. But it could be argued that Mackenzie has had an even longer relationship with Emily Carr (1871 – 1945), the woman, painter, writer and overlooked pioneer of modernism. Although born in very different historical periods, they each faced cultural influences that shaped their work and, at times, forced them to work outside of conventional practices to interpret the environment in which they lived and created.

    Soldiers’ Stories is being recognized simultaneously as the world’s oldest 3-D film and one of its newest! We are proud of the fact that Oscar-winning producer Nicholas Reed and producer/director Jonathan Kitzen brought their powerful story to the modern screen with expertise from Emily Carr’s own S3D Centre.

    The film recently debuted in Beverly Hills, has been shown in LA, New York and London, and now runs regularly at the National Infantry Museum (IMAX theatre) outside Fort Benning, Georgia. With the compelling voices of recent American vets, and narration by Mickey Rooney, never-before-seen, soldier-taken, century-old 3-D photographs were converted for the modern screen with the stereoscopic expertise of Dr. Maria Lantin and her research team at Emily Carr University.
