Guy Maddin is a Canadian independent filmmaker. His work frequently recreates in amazing detail the style and techniques of silent films and early sound cinema. In addition, his movies typically toy with blurring notions of documentary and fantasy, such as in the pseudo-biographical film My Winnipeg; while several of his short films, such as Sissy-Boy Slap-Party, pay homage to the late '60s underground filmmaker Jack Smith.
