Upstate Films and One Mile Gallery present Guy Maddin, filmmaker/cultural iconoclast/artist, in this homage to Alfred Hitchcocks spellbinding VERTIGO.
Inventive and invigorating, this San Francisco Fantasia is lauded by the New York Times as a marvel of film scholarship. Its also a lot of fun. Through 12 features and many shorts, adventurous artist Guy Maddin exhibits the rare ability to simultaneously subvert and honor the craft of filmmaking.
Working with his Forbidden Room collaborators, Evan Johnson and Galen Johnson, and composer Jacob Garchik and Kronos Quartet, Maddin set himself the challenge to remake VERTIGO without using footage from the Hitchcock classic, creating a parallel-universe version." Using Bay Area footage from a variety of sourcesstudio classics, 50s noir, experimental films, and 70s prime-time TV and employing his mastery of assemblage, the result exerts the pull of Hitchcocks tale of erotic obsession while paying tribute to the city of San Francisco.
Maddin's credits include the Emmy Award-winning ballet film Dracula: Pages From A Virgins Diary (2002); The Saddest Music in the World (2003); My Winnipeg (2007); US National Society of Film Critics Best Experimental Film Prize winners Archangel (1990), and The Heart of the World (2000). Maddin was Visiting Lecturer on Visual and Environmental Studies, 201516, at Harvard University, and is a member of The Order of Canada & The Order of Manitoba.
