guy_maddin_iconThe Magnificent Cinematic Obsession of Guy Maddin

Guy Maddin
This Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker event will be in the form of an extended, on-stage interview led by James Naremore.


GUY MADDIN
Guy Maddin’s singular body of work is as beautiful as it is confounding and delirious. He incorporates the language of past cinema, with which he is most intimately familiar from his countless hours of film viewing, and combines this with a pre-cinematic sensibility learned from the books he voraciously devours. A man of extraordinary intellectual appetites, Maddin’s many interests and obsessions can easily be discerned in his work.
