GUY MADDIN’S MY WINNIPEG
Midnight @ Portage & Main
Named one of Roger Ebert’s top ten films of the decade, Guy Maddin’s My Winnipeg is a film no Winnipegger should dare miss, especially when it is presented on Winnipeg’s most famous street corner.

“Guy Maddin’s films are like a silent movie dreaming it can speak. No frame of his work could be mistaken for anyone else’s. He combines documentary, lurid melodrama, newsreels, feverish fantasies and tortured typography into a form that appears to contain urgent information. His sound tracks are sometimes clear narration, sometimes soap opera, sometimes snatches that seem heard over a radio from long ago and far away. The effect is hypnotic.” – Roger Ebert, excerpted from The Best Films of the Decade by Roger Ebert, December 2009
