A brand new 4K remastering of Tales From The Gimli Hospital Redux by Guy Maddin!!

The Winnipeg lovably bizarro film wizard's highly acclaimed first feature, released in 1988, is now regarded as one of the true cult hits on the midnight movie circuit.

Set during a smallpox epidemic in the village of Gimli, Manitoba near the turn of the century, Tales From The Gimli Hospital Redux is a dreamlike, elliptical film which explores the jealousy and madness instilled in two men who share a hospital room “in a Gimli we no longer know.”

"[One] Maddin's most successful experiments in untuned cinema." - Noel Murray, AV Club

"Guy Maddin's groundbreaking debut feature Tales from the Gimli Hospital restored in glorious 4K, .. gorgeously crisp, the sound perfection, with a long-lost scene of the 1988 cult classic about blistering lust and seething envy on Lake Winnipeg." - Anne Brodie, What She Said

"Whatever else you might say about this weird, creepy, and funny independent item by Guy Maddin, it's certainly different." - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
