What more can said about the story of Dracula? Guy Maddin’s Dracula is visual feast featuring the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s adaptation of Dracula. This version of the perennially popular story stars Johnny W. Chang as the titular Count and shifts the focus of the story to xenophobia.
Full of the silent era flair that Maddin excels at, Dracula seems like a film forgotten by time. Commissioned by the CBC the film initially premiered on television and was later released theatrically to international acclaim.
