Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary

When: Sun., April 12, 3 p.m. 2015

Canadian cult auteur Guy Maddin has concocted his most ravishingly stylized cinematic creation to date. Beautifully transposing the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s interpretation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula from stage to screen, Maddin has forged a sumptuous, erotically charged feast of dance, drama, and shadow. The film is a Gothic grand guignol of the notorious Count and his bodice-ripped victims, fringed with the expressionistic strains of Gustav Mahler. The New Yorker declared that “Victorian sexuality and melodrama are brought together in a shadowy world of expressionistic images and an athletic, almost rabid, choreography.” (35mm presentation)
