Guy Maddin | My Winnipeg
The Criterion Collection has just announced its January releases, which includes Guy Maddin's 2007 "love letter to his home town", My Winnipeg. Previously, Maddin was represented in the collection by Brand Upon the Brain, from 2006.
The "Director Approved Special Edition" will feature a new high-definition digital restoration, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray. The extras include a conversation between Maddin and art critic Robert Enright, a 2008 featurette called “My Winnipeg” Live in Toronto, three short films by Maddin (Spanky: To the Pier and Back, Sinclair, and Only Dream Things), deleted scenes and the original trailer.
The cover features a new design by Marcel Dzama.
