Kuba Mikurda, Michał Oleszczyk,
Kino wykolejone. Rozmowy z Guyem Maddinem
Korporacja Ha!art i Stowarzyszenie Nowe Horyzonty,
Kraków-Warszawa 2009, Linia Wizualna
Guy Maddin refreshes the cinema language, drawing from silent films, early "talkies", European painting, 19th- century literature (e.g. Bruno Schulz, Robert Musil, Raymond Roussel) and his own biography. Guy Maddin's films are a rare phenomenon - experimental and popular at the same time, formally sophisticated and yet easily understandable, erudite and intimate as well. Maddin sets cinema stereotypes in motion, he re-invents long-forgotten techniques, uses overlapping conventions - as if shaking a kaleidoscope now and again, with colliding emotions, images and stories.
In February 2009, Kuba Mikurda and Michał Oleszczyk visited Maddin in "his" Winnipeg and on return they brought back more than 25 hours of recorded conversations. Rozmowy z Guyem Maddinem is a record of "magnificent obsessions" - mad love for cinema, private mythologies, work on "live memories".
