Genre: Comedy, Assemblage Film
Running Time: 1h 03min
Local singer-songwriter Liam Russell once again graces the ORF stage to deliver some of the best indie music Toronto has to offer. And after that, ORF delivers a film directed by one of Canada’s most celebrated and discussed independent filmmakers – Guy Maddin –who, working with co-directors Galen Johnson and Evan Johnson, produced the unique, singular psychedelic assemblage The Green Fog. Screened at the Berlinale, as well as TIFF Bell Lightbox to a packed house, it lovingly pays homage to and cheekily recreates Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. Featuring a Kronos Quartet-performed score, The Green Fog sounds as good as it looks. “This ingenious gizmo will delight Maddin fans, or anyone else who enjoys games played with and about old movies.” (Dennis Harvey, Variety)
With a musical performance by Liam Russell
Doors open at 7:00 pm, Liam Russell performs at 8:00 pm, and THE GREEN FOG will begin when the sun goes down (roughly around 9:00 pm).
