A rare treat we shall find in the next few days on Bravo!Canada. The channel is showcasing fantastic films by Guy Maddin, one of the most innovative directors in Canada. The series will include Brand Upon the Brain! which made my list of favourite films & experiences of 2007. If you haven't seen any of his films I strongly urge you to check them out, there is literally nothing like them. He is a master at creating bizarre worlds and implausible characters, yet with such a strong thread to the familiar that is makes us feel as though we walk amongst them in these worlds. Take a walk with them this week.
