FilmSoc Week 12: The Forbidden Room
18 October, 2016
Old Geology Lecture Theatre
Dir. Guy Maddin - 2015 - Canada
The Forbidden Room is the latest film from Guy Maddin, whose My Winnipeg is a FilmSoc favourite. A submarine crew, a feared pack of forest bandits, a famous surgeon, and a battalion of child soldiers all get more than they bargained for as they wend their way toward progressive ideas on life and love. It's the funniest film Maddin has ever made, and its dreamlike aesthetic is exquisitely designed. Don't miss this one, it's a breathtaking experience.
Find us on Tuesday in Old Geology Lecture Theatre. We'll have pizza from 5pm and the screening will start at about 5:15pm. We'll be heading to the Forest Lodge Hotel afterwards for post-film drinks and discussion.
This event is free for members, $5 for Access cardholders. Annual membership is $5 for Access cardholders.
