Bell Montreal explores how Montreal envisioned its future in the 60s and 70s and how it holds onto its past in the 21st century. The telephone was seeing significant advances at the same time Montreal was entering the world as a major secular metropolis, and the two shared similar projections of the future of technology and lifestyle. 
However, like the Bell pay-phones featured here, Montreal did not become the city it saw itself as. Bell Montreal mixes still 35mm photography and found footage of original Bell Telephone commercials to highlight the city’s odd decision to maintain so many these pay-phones despite their obsolescence.​​​​​​​
