Anatomy of Melancholy: the Short Films of Guy Maddin
A selection of the finest short films of Winnipeg auteur Guy Maddin, a connoisseur and champion of the format, and one of contemporary cinema’s most staggeringly original and iconoclastic voices
Please note that the performance on Saturday 25th has undergone a change of venue and time. Now screening in Filmhouse 2 at 21:05.
Through an always entertaining, and combustive fusion of signature elements, Maddin elegantly steamrolls through prescribed norms and values, in order to bring into sharp focus the elemental angst and absurdity of human existence; all the while creating impeccably beautiful visual images. Join us to revel in Maddin's anarchic playpen, where the surreal reigns supreme.
