Have you ever wanted to relive your childhood and do things differently? Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin (The Saddest Music in the World) casts B-movie icon Ann Savage as his domineering mother in a filmic attempt to answer that question in My Winnipeg, a hilariously wacky and profoundly touching goodbye letter to his childhood (and current) hometown. A documentary (or 'docu-fantasia' as Maddin proclaims) that inventively blends local and personal history with surrealist images and metaphorical myths, the film covers everything from a frozen lake of distressed horse heads to pivotal and 'factually heightened' scenes from Maddin's own childhood, all laced with a startling emotional honesty. My Winnipeg is Maddin's most personal film and a truly unique cinematic experience. It won best Canadian film honors at the Toronto International Film Festival and was the opening night selection of the Berlin Film Festival's Forum.
