Guy Maddin at The New School

Guy Maddin chatted about his films, and screened shorts and excerpts at The New School, including some examples from Hauntings, his installation of lost works of cinema recreated in Guy Maddin fashion.  Maddin is a master of witty self-deprecation when speaking about his work.  A memorable quip was his attribution of the screenings his early films to the closing of the Bleecker Street Cinema.

I did see Maddin's Archangel when it ran at the Bleecker Street Cinema, way back when.  Perhaps the remembrances of those long lost citadels of cinema, the old revival theaters and out-of-the-mainstream movie houses, are yet another cinematic haunting?
