"Where Are My Children?" & "Little Man, What Now?" Introduced by Guy Maddin |
Universal Pictures: Celebrating 100 Years Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Maddin is also a passionate cinephile with a taste for films as eclectic and eccentric as his own. Tonight, he shares his enthusiasm for two faves from Universal. Lois Weber’s Where Are My Children? is an early anti-abortion/pro–birth control film that was selected for the National Film Registry in 1993. Weber, at times an actress, writer, producer, and director, is considered one of the most influential women in film history. Incomparable Columbus musician Derek Dicenzo performs a live score. (62 mins., 35mm) Starring Margaret Sullavan, Little Man, What Now? is the rare Hollywood film that depicted Germany’s depression and political upheaval between the wars. Released when Hitler was already chancellor, the film follows expectant newlyweds whose love for each other keeps them afloat while navigating the country’s harsh economic climate. (98 mins., 35mm) Guy Maddin is the award-winning director of Careful, Heart of the World, and Brand Upon the Brain. His most recent feature, Keyhole, was produced with the support of a Wexner Center Residency Award.
