My Winnipeg

My Winnipeg

 

NR, 80 min, Documentary/Comedy/Drama, Canada

Fact, fantasy and memory are woven seamlessly together in this portrait of film-maker Guy Maddin’s home town of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Visionary Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin pays tribute to his beloved hometown with this goodbye letter and self-described “docu-fantasia” that is equal parts transcendental rumination, historical chronicle, and personal portrait.

32 Short Films about Glenn Gould

32 Short Films about Glenn Gould

 

PG, 98 min, Biography/Drama/Music, Canada

As the title suggests, this dramatised documentary about the eccentric Canadian pianist Glenn Gould is broken up into thirty-two short films (mirroring the thirty-two part structure of Bach’s ‘Goldberg Variations’, the recording that Gould made famous), each giving us an insight into some aspect of Gould’s life and career. Fictional recreations, many starring an excellent Colm Feore as Gould, follow the musician from his precocious childhood to his early death at the age of fifty. Director Francois Girard refuses to provide easy explanations for the pianist’s quirks, instead using his unconventional structure to provide great insight while suggesting the real Gould remains essentially unknowable.
