My Winnipeg
Midnight(Portage & Main)

Named one of Roger Ebert’s top ten films of the decade, Guy Maddin’s My Winnipeg is a film no Winnipegger should dare miss, especially when it is presented on Winnipeg’s most famous street corner.

“Guy Maddin’s films are like a silent movie dreaming it can speak. No frame of his work could be mistaken for anyone else’s. He combines documentary, lurid melodrama, newsreels, feverish fantasies and tortured typography into a form that appears to contain urgent information. His sound tracks are sometimes clear narration, sometimes soap opera, sometimes snatches that seem heard over a radio from long ago and far away. The effect is hypnotic.” – Roger Ebert, excerpted from The Best Films of the Decade by Roger Ebert, December 2009

WallBalls ClusterBuster
7:30pm – 12am (2nd floor – 125 Adelaide St.)
Performance at 10:00pm – 12am

Cluster is a new Winnipeg contemporary music and integrated arts festival occurring annually in March.

Created by local young composers Luke Nickel and Heidi Ugrin, Cluster presents programming that is unapologetic in innovation and provocation; unrelenting in its optimism and integrity. Cluster presents two dynamic interactive activities:

WallBalls – interactive – electronic sound playground – smart tabletop – instant improvisation -group fun or fly solo – stimulating soundscapes – build and destroy (created by Grant Partridge)

Fractal Fracas! – wiimote like you’ve never seen before – shifting fractal images – multiple projections – harmonic matrix – total insanity (created by Daryn Bond).

Come and try your hand at these exciting aural activities, or sit back and listen to the electric sound of human interaction and collaboration.

Cult Film Classics
11:30pm-5am(Muriel Richardson Auditorium)

Alice in Wonderland by Norman Z. McLeod
A humdrum afternoon turns into a surrealist nightmare, as Alice passes through the looking glass to discover an exceedingly strange and sometimes creepy land behind the mirror. One of the most bizarre, and zany film versions of Alice in Wonderland, this classic from 1933 includes a wonderful cameo by Cary Grant as the Mock Turtle.

Brazil by Terry Gilliam
A film of longstanding cult status, Terry Gilliam’s Brazil is a masterpiece of Orwellian satire about a low-level bureaucrat living in a deeply dystopian society. Starring Jonathan Pryce, Kim Greist, Robert de Niro, Ian Holm, Bob Hoskins.

Donnie Darko by Richard Kelly
A more recent cult favorite, Donnie Darko is a psychological thriller about a teenage boy who is menaced by apocalyptic visions featuring a rabbit named Frank.

Gr8. Bits Show 1.2
12am-4am(Skylight Gallery)
Winnipeg media artist mrghosty (Skot Deeming) presents a live interactive media art installation based on the culture and aesthetic of video games.

All artists will be in attendance to showcase their work.
