THE FORBIDDEN ROOM

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.

Best Canadian First Feature Film, Toronto...
