Brand Upon the Brain!


Shot in nine days, this story of a man’s return to his childhood home has been described as a collaboration between Poe and Dalí, a Freudian vampire film and an avant-garde excursion. When it premiered at TIFF in 2006, it was accompanied by a live orchestra, a singer, an interlocutor and Foley artists. Maddin’s silent horror about confronting the past challenges the potential of filmic storytelling and the cinematic experience.
