My Winnipeg
Sponsored by The Declaration
October 19th-7:00 and 9:30PM- 80 minutes
Dir. Guy Maddin- Canada 2007

Pitching the slogan “the truth is relative,” Guy Maddin gives us an inside look into his past, and how he would have liked to change it. In his self-proclaimed “docu-fantasia,” we are led through the winding streets and tangled lives of Winnipeg, Manitoba, viewing the town through the humorous, bizarre, or the sometimes excruciatingly mundane lens of the director. “The prismatic 80-minute film is a visual translation of a voluptuously nostalgic state of Maddinesque Winnipeg-itude.” (Lisa Schwarzbaum, Enterntainment Weekly)
