Have you ever wanted to relive your childhood and do things differently? Guy Maddin (The Saddest Music In the World) casts B-movie icon Ann Savage and his domineering mother in attempt to answer that question in "My Winnipeg," a hilariously wacky and profoundly touching goodbye letter to his childhood hometown. This indie film from IFC is a documentary (or "docu-fantasia" as Maddin proclaims) that blends local and personal history with surrealist images and metaphorical myths that cover everything from the fire at the local park, which leads to a frozen lake of distressed horse heads, to pivotal, sometimes traumatic, factually heightened scenes from Maddin's own childhood. "My Winnipeg" is Maddin's most personal film and a truly unique cinematic experience, winning the best Canadian film at the Toronto International Film Festival and the opening night selection of the Berlin Film Festival's Forum.

Critics Consensus: My Winnipeg is a charmingly irreverent 'docu-fantasy' from the unpredictable mind of Guy Maddin.
