The Red Violin & My Winnipeg
Presented as part of the National Canadian Film Day 150 Screening Event, The Dalnavert Museum is screening 2 films!
2pm THE RED VIOLIN: a 1998 Canadian drama film directed by François Girard. It spans four centuries and five countries as it tells the story of a mysterious red-colored violin and its many owners. The film was an international co-production among companies in Canada, Italy, and the United Kingdom.
8pm MY WINNIPEG: a 2007 film directed & written by Guy Maddin with dialogue by George Toles. Although ostensibly a documentary What is real and what is fantasy is left up to the viewer to sort out, but dont be fooled by Maddins fantastical approach some of the most shocking stories in My Winnipeg are the true ones! Shot in Maddins signature black-and-white style and narrated by the director, the film is funny, touching and mesmerizing.
