Guy Maddin Day

Sunday, Apr 3, 2016

In his eleven-screen installation Hauntings (on view as part of Walkers: Hollywood Afterlives in Art & Artifact), Guy Maddin imagines a parallel universe where recreated excerpts from never-completed films by such directors as F.W. Murnau, Fritz Lang, and Kenji Mizoguchi live on as ghostly fragments. Maddin’s completely original films draw their inspiration from early cinema. Maddin will be present for a discussion following a rare screening of his 1992 film Careful, and to introduce Blackmail and Dracula, two early talkies that he selected.
