DIRECTOR: Guy Mddin, Evan Johnson - CANADA

A film that “has more ideas in ten minutes than most filmmakers have in their entire oeuvres” (Sight and Sound), The Forbidden Room has been favorably compared to taking LSD in a film archive. Reshaping cinematic images into surreal juxtapositions and ingeniously impossible narratives, we are led through delirious visions with an equally eclectic cast that includes Geraldine Chaplin, Udo Kier, Mathieu Amalric and Charlotte Rampling. “A wild, demented cinephiliac feast from the mind of Guy Maddin.”—Hollywood Reporter. Best Canadian Film, Toronto Film Critics Association. (133 mins.)

Filmography: Keyhole (2011), My Winnipeg (2007), Brand Upon the Brain! (2006), The Saddest Music in the World (2003), Cowards Bend the Knee (2003), Twilight of the Ice Nymphs (1997), Archangel (1990), Tales from the Gimli Hospital (1988)
