Episode 174: Guy Maddin (feat. Dave Canfield & Patrick Ripoll)

Director's Club

This month, we are joined by the one and only Dave Canfield of ScreenAnarchy & Mindframes Podcast to discuss a truly fascinating filmmaker, Canada’s very own Guy Maddin. We try to get to the bottom of his visual aesthetics, discuss the nature of autobiographical filmmaking and praise several of his short films along the way. The focus this time is on the critically acclaimed The Saddest Music of the World as well as his award-winning docu-fantasia My Winnipeg, which Roger Ebert named one of the best films of the decade. In addition, we talk a lot for the what we watched segment including a psychologically complex body horror drama called Swallow, the recently acclaimed Portrait of a Lady on Fire as well a brief foray into disaster films of the late 90s! This episode has it all and we couldn’t be more grateful to Dave for coming on. See you in about a month!

The Green Fog / Film School interview with Co-director Guy Maddin

KUCI: Film School

Guy Maddin and collaborators Galen and Evan Johnson made this ode to VERTIGO and the city of San Francisco for the closing night world premiere gala of the 2017 San Francisco International Film Festival. The iconoclastic Winnipeg-based filmmakers, working together since 2015’s THE FORBIDDEN ROOM, set themselves the challenge and constraint to remake VERTIGO, creating what they call a “parallel-universe version.” Using Bay Area-based footage from hundreds of sources—studio classics, ’50s noir, documentary and experimental films, and ’70s prime-time TV—and employing Maddin’s mastery of assemblage technique, seen in work like MY WINNIPEG and BRAND UPON THE BRAIN, the result exerts the inexorable pull of Hitchcock’s twisted tale of erotic obsession while paying tribute to the City by the Bay and the ways it looks and feels through the medium of cinema   Composed by Jacob Garchik and performed by Kronos Quartet, the film’s score nods to Bernard Hermann’s classic VERTIGO music as it collides and converses with Maddin and Johnsons’ irreverent and loving footage to create a distinctive musical extravaganza. Through 12 features and many shorts, adventurous artist Guy Maddin exhibits the rare ability to simultaneously subvert and honor the craft of  filmmaking. His credits include the Emmy Award-winning ballet film Dracula: Pages From A Virgin’s Diary (2002); The Saddest Music in the World (2003); My Winnepeg (2007) and US National Society of Film Critics Best Experimental Film Prize-winners Archangel  (1990) and The Heart of the World (2000). Guy Maddin talks about the “City by the Bay,” scriptwriting, storytelling and his favorite film, Vertigo.For news and updates go to: balconyfilm.com/the-green-fog

Murmur 76 : Guy Maddin "The Stupidest Man At Harvard (In Praise of Beloved Aunt Li'l)"

Murmur Digital Radio

SUBJECT : TEACHING FILM A subject uniquely-near to us.  Can film be taught?  Yes.  Should film be taught?  That's up to the instructor.  An instructor we'd never let down is filmmaker Guy Maddin who has made teaching a subtle advocation for the past several years.  The film students at Harvard were exposed to this genius artist, begging the questions -- do advanced degrees make the film teacher?  Is teaching an art?  And what are film students truly signing on for when they study a craft and history that's concise and finite-enough to learn autodidactically?  In the hands of Professor Maddin, learning film is merely an excuse to go to class.
