The Saddest Music in the World

Saturday, October 27, 2012, 4:00 pm
Club B-10
$5


Iconic Canadian director Guy Maddin set his 2003 odd masterpiece The Saddest Music in the World in his hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, during the Great Depression. The film, which stars Mark McKinney (of Kids in the Hall), Isabella Rossellini, Maria de Medeiros, David Fox, and Ross McMillan, is a comic musical that unfolds around a beer magnate’s contest to find the saddest piece of music in the world. The contest draws entrants from across the globe, but ultimately boils down to competition within one family. Strange, sad, and funny in equal measure, the film is shot with Maddin’s off-kilter genius.
