Cult director Guy Maddin revisits his boyhood in Winnipeg, casting 1940s femme fatale Ann Savage in the role of his mother. The reality-bending doesn’t end there. Creative interpretations of local lore, reenactments of childhood traumas, and a quasi-documentary style make My Winnipeg a surreal reinvention of childhood.
