Never quite seen a documentary like this one. I love the way Maddin uses cinema for what it is, or rather: what it can be. A state between dreams and reality, past and present at the same time.
Guy Maddin sounds like John Cusack.
Winnipeg has always forbidden the shanty towns and hobo villages which typically pop up in other cities.
Still on the books here is a law which keeps our homeless out of sight, up on the rooftops of our city, above us, an aboriginal happy land, in the clouds.
Aboriginal happy land
