About My Winnipeg

Year Released:
Comedy, Documentary, Drama
Have you ever wanted to relive your childhood and do things differently? Guy Maddin casts B-movie icon Ann Savage as his domineering mother in attempt to answer that question in My Winnipeg, a hilariously wacky and profoundly touching goodbye letter to his childhood hometown. The film is a “docu-fantasia” (as Maddin proclaims) that blends local and personal history with surrealist images and metaphorical myths that cover everything from a frozen lake of distressed horse heads to sometimes traumatic scenes from Maddin’s own childhood. The film is Maddin’s most personal and a truly unique cinematic experience. (35mm presentation)

Guy Maddin is scheduled to be present.
