Welcome back Guy Maddin—who has graced our stages more than any other filmmaker—for two programs commemorating the 30th anniversary of both the Wex and New York–based champions of indie film Strand Releasing.
On Thursday, November 21, Maddin introduces one of his classic, breathtaking homages to cinema past, Careful. Maddin’s third feature follows the residents of a small mountain village who live under the constant threat of avalanches that can be trigged by loud noises—or even an unseemly expression of emotion. (100 mins., 35mm)
On Friday, November 22, Maddin joins Strand Releasing President Marcus Hu and Director Gregg Araki for the screening of a special project that combines one-minute films from 30 leading filmmakers, including Maddin, followed by a screening of Araki’s 1992 classic The Living End.
