Weird Old Winnipeg: Shorts Program

Various | Canada | 2008-2014 | 61 minutes | May 6 9:30pm VIFF Vancity Theatre 

Calling all Pegcity ex-pats, friends, fans, and foes of Canada’s strangest city! In honour of the 40th anniversary of the mighty Winnipeg Film Group, DOXA has lined up a flavourful collection of films from some of the city’s most visionary filmmakers including Jaimz Asmundson and Karen Asmundson (Citizens Against Basswood), Dave Barber (Will The Real Dave Barber Please Stand Up), Walter Forsberg (Fahrenheit 7-Eleven), Ryan McKenna (Controversies), Matthew Rankin (I Dream of Driftwood), Leslie Supnet (Animated Heavy Metal Parking Lot and Spectroscopy), Rhayne Vermette (J. Werier), and Aaron Zeghers and Nigel Webber (11 Parking Lots and One Gradual Sunset).

Each of these filmmakers, in their own unique way, throw out the tired old definition of documentary, and offer in its place a veritable extravaganza of flatlander form, fuelled by bizarre humour, keen observation, and a knack for the deeply peculiar. That inimitable prairie sensibility is hard to capture in words, but you know it when you feel it. Like a brain freeze from a Slurpee in a North End 7-Eleven (fun fact: Manitoba is Slurpee capital of the world), or that certain gravy-laden aroma à la Salisbury House. From lonely parking lots to abandoned emporiums; cranky citizens, colourful cityscapes, animated metal heads, and Burton Cummings impersonators, the one thing these films have in common, whether it be in the form of exaggerated narrative or fragmented abstractions, is their attention to the overlooked, and even forgotten elements of the city. DOXA itself was born from the unique vision of a certain Winnipeg gal named Kris Anderson, and we’re very happy to celebrate the wonderful weirdness of the city, in all its gonzo glory, right here in Vancouver. -SC

Winnipeg Handshake

Nuit Blanche! Minuit pile! Il faut assister à mon programme du cinéma kamikaze de Winnipeg. Dans le cadre de l’exposition CHRYSTALLINE: The Cinematic & the Hand-Made, je vais partager avec vous les films les plus weird et extatiques de ma ville natale.

Je vous encourage, donc, de faire beaucoup de drogues et venez découvrir le génie hallucinogène de Mike Maryniuk, le Super-8 pathologique de la famille Asmundson, l’animation visionnaire de Leslie Supnet, outsider artist Rob Vilar, Concordia MFA Heavyweight Champion Solomon Nagler, Deco Dawson & The Royal Art Lodge, plus tant de surprises!

It is this curator’s belief that Winnipeg, after the United States and Québec, is North America’s third enduringly great nation-state of the motion picture. Focussing on the crazed, obsessive and enchanted hand-made, emulsion-based films of Winnipeg’s artistic underclass, this Nuit blanche tour of prairie postmodernism will explore Winnipeg in all of its transgression, subversion and singularity.
