When: April 4-12, 6:30 p.m. 2015
Canadian national treasure Guy Maddin’s love letters to silent melodrama, film noir and his hometown of Winnepeg blow mindless, stilted pastiches like The Artist out of the water. They perversely combine Freudian symbolism, distressed film elements, mordant humor, homoeroticism, heteroeroticism, outlandish hairstyling and ever more fascinating grotesqueries that seem to have emerged, fully fractured, from the frozen deep. We’re excited about his visit to IU Cinema, in other words. On April 10, he’ll lecture and intro a screening of the surrealist mess that is L’Age d’Or. Head to cinema.indiana.edu for a full list of his own films screening during his visit, including his recent city symphony My Winnipeg.
