MY WINNIPEG

Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin conducts a personal tour of Winnipeg, Manitoba, the town where he grew up and still lives, in a film he calls a "docu-fantasia." By combining archival footage, interviews  and dreamlike sequences he attempts to relive his childhood. A hilariously wacky and profoundly touching goodbye letter to his childhood hometown. Maddin inventively blends local and personal history with surrealist images and metaphorical myths. My Winnipeg is Maddin's most personal film and a truly unique cinematic experience, winning the best Canadian film at the Toronto International Film Festival and the opening night selection of the Berlin Film Festival's Forum.
