My Winnipeg Canada, 2007, 80 minutes Director: Guy Maddin
Have you ever wanted to relive your childhood and do things differently? Guy Maddin attempts to answer that question in My Winnipeg, a hilariously wacky and profoundly touching goodbye letter to his childhood hometown. The film is a documentary ("docu-fantasia" per Maddin) that blends local and personal history with surrealist images and metaphorical myths covering everything from the fire at the local park, to traumatic, factually heightened scenes from Maddin's own childhood. Maddin's most personal film is a unique cinematic experience, winning an award at the Toronto International Film Festival.
