Review

A documentary on the work of Guy Maddin, a Canadian avant-garde director. Montmayeur was invited to 14th Jeonju International Film Festival with his film Michael H. Profession: Director in 2013. This time, he investigates the roots of Maddin’s world of experiment and protest through films My Winnipeg, The Forbidden Room, and Bing&Bela. Montmayeur uses all tools like personal history, cinematic influences, and networks including his mother who ran a beauty salon, his yearing for European directors who moved to the US, and his influences and relationships with Kenneth Anger, Rumiere, Isabella Rossellini, Udo Kier, Quay brothers, and John Waters. Besides Maddin’s narration on his past, interviews and clips of making film show how an artist had developed his own unique taste and style. (JANG Byungwon)
