Canadian auteur Guy Maddin provides live narration alongside a screening of his most intimate film, My Winnipeg. Named Best Canadian Film in 2007 by the Toronto Film Critics Association, My Winnipeg is a "docu-fantasia" that combines elements of fiction and some stranger-than-fiction to create a dizzying portrait of the director’s hometown.
Guy Maddin is an installation & internet artist, lecturer at Harvard, writer and filmmaker, and the director of eleven feature-length movies, including The Forbidden Room (2015), My Winnipeg (2007), The Saddest Music in the World (2003), and innumerable shorts. He has also mounted around the world over seventy performances of his films featuring live elements – orchestra, sound effects, singing and narration. He is also a member of The Order of Canada & The Order of Manitoba.
