My Winnipeg: a new movie by Guy Maddin

Guy Maddin is a Canadian filmmaker who hails from Winnipeg, Manitoba. His films are highly experimental, dreamlike, and reminiscent of German expressionist films as well as Soviet propaganda films of that era.

His films often reference his hometown and elements from his childhood. Some of his features include Careful about an Alpine Village, and its constant fear of succumbing to an avalanche; The Saddest Music in the World, a depression era tale of a beer baroness creating a contest in order to seek the saddest music in the world; and My Winnipeg, a man’s love/hate story for his hometown.
