< STUMP THE GUESSER >
He works at the fairground as “Stump the Guesser”, who can guess anything for a fee. But suddenly his tricks stop working. And
then he unwittingly falls in love with his sister whom he believed to be lost. He sets out to scientifically disprove the theory of heredity and marry his beloved as soon as possible. An absurdist firework of a silent film in black and white.

Guy Maddin is a Canadian film director, screenwriter, cinematographer and actor. He studied economics at the University of Winnipeg, working as a bank manager and house painter before becoming a filmmaker. Fascinated with lost silent era films, Maddin debuted in the film industry with his short film The Dead Father (1986), followed by his first full-length film Tales From The Gimli Hospital (1988). Madden styles his low-budget films in the manner of silent and early years of sound cinema, creating a surreal, grotesque atmosphere of psychodrama and black comedy. Maddin’s films illustrate cinema as an art form associated with memories, dreams, and ghosts. Guy Maddin is an artist known worldwide for his installations and collages. He is the author of three books and a member of The Order of Canada & The Order of Manitoba.
