Special Screenings

Keyhole / Guy Maddin

A gangster and deadbeat father, Ulysses Pick, returns home after a long absence. He arrives, toting two teenagers: a drowned girl, Denny, who has mysteriously returned to life, and a bound-and-gagged hostage, who is actually his own teenage son, Manners. Confused, Ulysses doesn’t recognize his own son, but he feels with increasing conviction that he must make an indoor odyssey from the back door of his home all the way up, one room at a time, to the marriage bedroom where his wife Hyacinth awaits, full of cancer, grieving over the deaths of her three other children, and wooed by Ulysses’ arch-rival, Chang. Meanwhile, the house is haunted by countless dead relatives...
