Sissy Slap Party Canada

Guy Maddin fans, we are about to make your day a whole lot better! Just confirmed for MIFF are three new shorts films from the delirious mind of Winnepeg's favourite son. Sissy Boy Slap Party (4mins), Sombra Dolorosa (4mins) and A Trip to the Orphange (4mins), made to complement his latest feature The Saddest Music in the World (also screening at MIFF this year), will screen before Maddin's outrageously inventive short feature, Cowards Bend the Knee.
