Event Description

(2017) dir Guy Maddin, Evan Johnson, Galen Johnson [63 min; DCP]
THE GREEN FOG, created by filmmaker/cultural iconoclast Guy Maddin (with co-directors Evan Johnson and Galen Johnson plus composer Jacob Garchik and Kronos Quartet), pays homage to Hitchcock’s spellbinding VERTIGO in a most unusual way. Inventive and invigorating, this “San Francisco Fantasia” is lauded by the New York Times as “a marvel of film scholarship.” It’s also a lot of fun. Maddin, working with his Forbidden Room collaborators, set himself the challenge to remake VERTIGO without using any of Hitchcock‘s footage, creating instead a “parallel-universe version.” Using Bay Area footage from a variety of sources – studio classics, ‘50s noir, experimental films, and ‘70s prime-time TV – and employing his mastery of assemblage, Maddin arrives at a surreal, hilarious, and mind-bending tribute to both the classic thriller and the city of San Francisco.

A "Double Feature" ticket additionally allows admission into the 9:00 PM screening of VERTIGO. No additional purchase is necessary.
