Double Feature with VERTIGO

(2017) dir Guy Maddin, Evan Johnson, Galen Johnson [63 min; DCP]
THE GREEN FOG, created by filmmaker/cultural iconoclast Guy Maddin (with co-directors Evan Johnson and Galen Johnson plus composer Jacob Garchik and Kronos Quartet), pays homage to Hitchcock’s spellbinding VERTIGO in a most unusual way. Inventive and invigorating, this “San Francisco Fantasia” is lauded by the New York Times as “a marvel of film scholarship.” It’s also a lot of fun. Maddin, working with his Forbidden Room collaborators, set himself the challenge to remake VERTIGO without using any of Hitchcock‘s footage, creating instead a “parallel-universe version.” Using Bay Area footage from a variety of sources – studio classics, ‘50s noir, experimental films, and ‘70s prime-time TV – and employing his mastery of assemblage, Maddin arrives at a surreal, hilarious, and mind-bending tribute to both the classic thriller and the city of San Francisco.

Staff Pick: Jessie, Kim

“Eerie, witty, and unexpectedly moving.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“The work of a sensibility as impish as it is scholarly, animated by a mischievous sense of the medium’s possibilities.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“First and foremost, ‘The Green Fog’ is a marvel of film scholarship that looks backward and forward from the Hitchcock masterpiece.” – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times

“The Green Fog fairly closely follows the structure of Hitchcock’s film; achieving that in itself is some sort of accomplishment. However, it’s not so much an assemblage as it is a conjuring.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
