“I’ve never taken LSD and wandered around a film archive, but I imagine the experience might be similar to The Forbidden Room.”—Guardian (UK)

Spend your Halloween in the mind of iconoclastic Canadian filmmaker and past Artist Residency Award recipient Guy Maddin (Keyhole, The Saddest Music in the World), who returns to Columbus for the area premiere of The Forbidden Room. A humorous, surreal, and mesmerizing tale inspired by lost and unrealized films and supported by the Film/Video Studio Program, Maddin’s phantasmagoric opus is a visual feast that weaves together multiple stories and performances by Charlotte Rampling, Mathieu Amalric, Udo Kier, Maria de Medeiros, Louis Negin, and Géraldine Chaplin, among others. (117 mins., DCP)

Before the screening, mingle with artists and filmmakers and toast the Film/Video Studio Program at a free public reception with cash bar and light fare in our lower lobby.
