Following its triumphant tour as a special event of select cities, including the San Francisco International Film Festival, BRAND UPON THE BRAIN! is presented in its local theatrical engagements. Director/co-writer Guy Maddin’s (The Saddest Music in the World) humorous tale is equal parts childhood reminiscence, expressionist horror movie, teen detective serial and Grand Guignol reverie. Guy (Sullivan Brown) and his teenage sister (Maya Lawson) live on a mysterious island they share with a horde of orphans. When suspicious head wounds start appearing on recently adopted children, teen detectives Wendy and Chance (Katherine E. Scharhon) launch into an investigation. Guy develops a hormone-driven crush on Wendy, while Sis is flush with love for Chance—a love that must be kept hidden from the siblings’ tyrannical mother (Gretchen Krich). Narrated by Isabella Rossellini.
“A psychosexually inflamed fusion of childhood reminiscence, Victorian melodrama, Freudian horror film and gender-bending Nancy Drew adventure…” -- Cliff Doerksen, Time Out Chicago

“One of the year's 10 best films..”-- Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“...could be a collaboration between Edgar Allan Poe and Salvador Dali. It’s an astonishing film.”— Roger Ebert, rogerebert.com

“The film is a singular achievement.” - Michael Phillips, The Chicago Tribune
