Winnipeg filmmaker GUY MADDIN is known for his tales of twisted nostalgia, his eerie retakes of Canadian history, and comical melodramas done in new interpretations of archaic styles.

His amazing movies include Tales from the Gimli Hospital, The Saddest Music in the World, and the semi-documentary My Winnipeg.

He’s one of the few directors that can make an arty film using experimental techniques that is totally enjoyable and funny.

But now he’s doing something different: bringing together live performance, interactive video and bilingual filmmaking in acostumes very unusual way. He’s currently shooting 12 movies in 13 days at the Phi Centre in a project known as SEANCES.  Guy Maddin speaks by telephone from Montreal to help guide us through the smoke and mirrors.
