Miami Beach Cinematheque. From Aug 15th through Aug 18th, 2008.My Winnipeg (Guy Maddin / Canada / 2008), featuring Darcy Fehr, Ann Savage, Amy Stewert and Louis Negin, will be screened at the Miami Beach Cinematheque for four consecutive days at 7:50 and 9:20 p.m.
This is Guy Maddin’s hilariously wacky and profoundly touching goodbye letter to his childhood hometown. The film is a documentary (or “docu-fantasia” as Maddin proclaims) that blends local and personal history with surrealist images and metaphorical myths that cover everything from the fire at the local park, which leads to a frozen lake of distressed horse heads, to pivotal, sometimes traumatic, factually heightened scenes from Maddin’s own childhood.
