"Tales From the Gimli Hospital: Reframed"
Dir. Guy Maddin (1988).
Maddin has “reframed” his first feature—a mock Nordic gothic about a smallpox epidemic in fin de siecle Winnipeg—with a new score, to be performed live. In its first incarnation, this product of an imaginary film studio, it achieved midnight cult status with its weird intimations of Eraserhead and SCTV.
