Zeitgeist Films presents a brand new 4K remastering of Tales From The Gimli Hospital Redux by Guy Maddin, which will be having its world premiere at the 47th Toronto International Film Festival. The new 4K digital remaster was supervised by Guy Maddin using original printing elements provided by the TIFF Cinematheque Library.
Films We Like and Zeitgeist Films will partner to theatrically release the film in the US and Canada, beginning September 30th at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto. Guy Maddin’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.”
