WHEN YOU'RE STRANGE
Guy Maddin, known for his weird, hallucinatory films, including last year's My Winnipeg, a personal portrait of his hometown, is in NYC for two events to promote his new book of the same name, a companion piece to the movie that includes Maddin's diary entries, childhood photos, and artwork. Tonight, at IFC, he'll be signing copies of the book before a screening of what he described as "the dreamiest of all my dream double bills": Jean Vigo's 1933 Zero for Conduct and Nicholas Ray's 1952 On Dangerous Ground. On Monday, he'll read with acclaimed poet Robert Polito (whose new movie-themed collection is titled Hollywood & God) at the Union Square Barnes & Noble. Tonight at 7:30, IFC Center, 323 Sixth Avenue, 212-924-7771, $15; Monday at 7, Union Square Barnes & Noble, 33 East 17th Street
Sun., April 19, 7:30 p.m.; Mon., April 20, 7 p.m., 2009
