Check out this documentary on the history of magic in Winnipeg - Genii Online

When people think of the magic capitals of the world, they often think of the big cities: Houdini escaping a straitjacket in New York City, David Copperfield performing in Vegas, and so on. The relatively small Canadian city of Winnipeg may not immediately come to mind, but it's been a hub for magicians for decades. The 2014 short documentary Pick a Card, Any Card (embedded above) details the uniquely rich history of Winnipeg magic, from the founding of the Winnipeg branch of the International Brotherhood of Magicians to the magicians currently working there today.
