Directed by Guy Maddin & Evan Johnson
2015, Canada, 117 min

February 25 screening introduced by co – director Evan Johnson.

Winnipeg director Guy Maddin’s new collaborative feature with Evan Johnson is like nothing you have ever seen before – a grand ode to lost cinema. Like a fiery volcano, the beautiful imagery erupts off the screen. Honouring classic cinema while electrocuting it with energy, this Russian nesting doll of a film follows a submarine that’s been trapped deep under water for months with an unstable cargo. As the terrified crew make their way through the corridors of the doomed vessel, they find themselves on a voyage into the origins of their darkest fears. Featuring an incredible soundscape and title credit montage by Galen Johnson the all star cast of great actors includes veterans Udo Kier, Charlotte Rampling, Geraldine Chaplin, Roy Dupuis, Mathieu Amalric, Louis Negin, and Maria de Medeiros.

Reviews

A celebration of the lost films of the silent era... stupendous....fascinating…hilariously madcap...a mind-melting feat of visual storytelling and performance.
