Cowards Bend at the Knee (Can, 2003, 1hr) “A lovingly self-loathing peek at myself, but only as I would have enough courage to look – through a cracked glass made foggy by hairspray (Guy Maddin)… A first-of-its-kind, 10-part peephole installation jam-packed with enough kinetically photographed action to seem like a never-ending cliffhanger” (season programme notes); The Dead Father (Can, 1985, 25 mins). The short that launched Maddin; Heart of the World (Can, 2000, 6 mins). If you never see any other film in your life, spare 6 minutes for the breathtaking agitprop fireworks of The Heart of the World. If this doesn’t make your heart skip a beat, nothing will.
