Guy Maddin in person!
The Green Fog (2017)
Friday, May 11 | 7pm | Wexner Center for the Arts
“It’s hard to know just what to compare this hour-long fantasia to, except perhaps to Christian Marclay’s legendary 24-hour collage piece The Clock (2010), in which the minutes and hours of the day are marked out in sampled fragments from countless films.” – Jonathan Romney, Film Comment
Best known for his cinematic alchemies conjured from an alternative film history including Archangel (1990), Careful (1992), and The Heart of the World (2000), Guy Maddin returns to the Wex with The Green Fog, a delirious reconstruction of Hitchcock’s Vertigo comprised of San Francisco footage from other films and television programs. The result is a loving, if irreverent, Maddinesque tribute to both a city and a cherished film. Maddin received a 2008-09 Residency Award in Film/Video that supported the production of 2011’s Keyhole. (63 mins, DCP)
