A networked planet; an improvised signal; the last swan.
Filmed on the northern shores of Lake Ontario, amid the ruined utopic architecture of Ontario Place, Cygnus takes the geodesic-domed Cinesphere (the first permanent installation of IMAX), a sunken lake freighter turned breakwater, and an invasive mute swan as subjects of its tripartite cosmic zoom.
