A documentary that enters into the mind of unclassifiable Canadian filmmaker guy Maddin, who is a fan of silent cinema, melodrama, and séance. Montmayeur’s camera goes behind the scenes during the making of his latest film The Forbidden Room. 

Panorama / Cinephilias
Premier latinoamericana

“I would like that people would watch films the same way they listen to music, without asking themselves what does it mean”, says Guy Maddin at the beginning of the documentary, and director Yves Montmayeur expands the discography formed by the Canadian director’s films without tampering with their meaning, and leaving the mystery intact. He adds voices to the choir: George Méliès, John Waters, Isabella Rossellini, Jack Smith, Udo Kier, Fritz Lang, Luis Buñuel, and the Quay Brothers are featured here as contemporaries in the counterpoint that walks in and out of cinema without ever exiting completely. For example: Maddin heard in the voices of the Islandic women from his family the echoes of characters by Joseph con Sternberg, and that expresses not so much the reason behind the strange diction of his films as the notion of a body that is configured by cinema up to the point of imagining itself as a psychic.
