My Winnipeg

My Winnipeg

Synopsis

My Winnipeg is an irreverent, witty, personal and sometimes hilarious homage to the hometown he loves and loathes in equal measures. Described as a docu-fantasia, My Winnipeg merges re-enactments, archives, still photos and animation to recreate the filmmaker's early years living with the dominant and fearsome Mrs Maddin, here played by the original femme fatale, Ann Savage, to his later attempts to leave the town that has cast its icy spell over him for his entire life.
