Dracula: Pages From a Virgin’s Diary

Directed by Guy Maddin

This darkly humorous, delirious mélange of ballet and blood was filmed with the Royal Winnepeg Ballet from the ballet Dracula, adapted from Bram Stoker’s novel. Shot on black & white Super-8 and 16mm then refilmed and otherwise reworked, this is an otherworldly tale of foreignness, lust and female sexuality that explores the languages of silent cinema and dance in a colour-splashed pas-de-deux.“More rhapsody than narrative, less motion picture than shadow play.” The Village Voice, N.Y.
