Guy Maddin (director)

Guy Maddin

born - February 28, 1956 in Winnipeg, Manitoba

Guy Maddin is a screenwriter and director of both features and short films from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

His most distinctive quality is his fondness for recreating the look and style of silent or early sound era films.

While the early film melodramas such as Weimar Republic German silent films and the 1920s Soviet agitprop gave Madden his inspiration, he has his own distinct personal style using clichés, psychosexual situations, bizarre stories and humor.
