(Canada/2007-directed by Guy Maddin)

From Canadian wunderkind Guy Maddin (Brand Upon the Brain! The Saddest Music in the World) comes another joyously demented, deeply witty work; this time, it’s a personally narrated fever dream about young Guy’s childhood in the wintry hometown of his memories. Maddin describes My Winnipeg’s disarming blend of documentary and surrealism as “docutasia,” a singular vision that appears to be a long-lost artifact from a movie history that never quite existed. Winner, Best Canadian Feature, Toronto Film Festival. (78 min.)

“The finest, funniest, saddest film I’ve seen in Toronto or at any festival this year.” –Richard Corliss, Time Magazine
