Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art

On Tuesday, June 20th, 2017 Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to present a special screening of The Green Fog, directed by Winnipeg cult favorite, Guy Maddin in collaboration with directors Even Johnson and Galen Johnson.
The Green Fog, 2017 is an adaptation/remake of Alfred Hitchcock's VERTIGO, created entirely from previously shot footage repurposed from 96 Hollywood studio films shot on location in San Francisco over the last century. The film was commissioned from the San Francisco International Film Festival for its 60th anniversary and premiered in San Francisco on April 16th of this year. The presentation at Plug In ICA marks the films third screening internationally.
Working under the banner of the Winnipeg-based filmmaking collective Development Ltd, Evan Johnson, Galen Johnson and Guy Maddin have recently completed the internet interactive, Seances (2016), a feature-length film The Forbidden Room (2015), the making-of documentary Bring Me the Head of Tim Horton (2015), and the Laszlo Maholy-Nagy installation loop Once a Chicken (2015). Their latest work The Green Fog (2017), is a featurette commissioned this year by the San Francisco International Film Festival to play on the closing night of its 60th anniversary edition.
This special screening is programmed in conjunction with session one of our Summer Institute research program lead by Chris Kraus. The film will be introduced by the directors who will also be present for a question and answer period following the screening. The event is free as always. The cash bar will be open. Everyone welcome!
