The Rossellinis. Double Screening with Guy Maddin
Actress, model and animal lover Isabella Rossellini has a special relationship with film sensation Guy Maddin from Winnipeg. Over a span of more than 20 years, they have made several films together, both shorts and features. Their films respectfully unravel cinema history through games whose rules only they know. Rossellini and Maddin’s cinematic bond goes beyond what a classic French director once said: “The history of cinema is boys photographing girls.” The three short encounters in this brief screening prove that point.
Online screenings: My Dad Is 100 Years Old (2005), Brief Encounter with the Rossellini Family (1953), a conversation with Guy Maddin
