Collaboration fim Marie Losier and Guy Maddin. Two sisters, ve brothers, a doctor and two nurses and the miraculous birth of a pair of hands.. but whose hands...

A woman with an oddly hairy belly gives birth to a pair of hands in Marie Losier’s giddily inventive "portrait" of filmmaker Guy Maddin, done as a collaboration between the two iconoclasts. A longtime fan of Maddin, Losier (best known for other inventive portraits of underground film icons like Tony Conrad and George Kuchar) hoped to document him as well; "I hate my voice and face," Maddin replied, and sent her Super-8 footage of his hands instead. Losier interwove the footage into her own distinct tale, shot like a surrealist 1920s silent film. A must for fans of Losier, Maddin and ingenious cinema in general, Manuelle Labor was completed for the Berlin Film Festival (where Maddin was the guest of honor). - (Jason Sanders)
