Canada’s cinematic crazyman Guy Maddin is taking his avant-garde filmmaking to new levels in Montréal. Maddin is currently at Montréal’s Phi Centre shooting Seances, a live film experience. Seances is being performed and filmed before a live studio audience. Maddin is shooting twelve films in thirteen days for the project, which will culminate as an interactive work for the National Film Board of Canada and as a feature film by Phi Films, Buffalo Gal Pictures and the NFB.
