** New 4K restoration, supervised by Guy Maddin! **

Guy Maddin’s highly acclaimed first feature first released in 1988 and is now regarded as one of the true cult hits on the midnight movie circuit.

Set during a smallpox epidemic in the village of Gimli, Manitoba near the turn of the century, Tales from the Gimli Hospital Redux is a dreamlike, elliptical film which explores the jealousy and madness instilled in two men who share a hospital room “in a Gimli we no longer know.”

Tales from the Gimli Hospital Redux had its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. Supervised by the director, the digital remaster used original printing elements provided by the TIFF Cinematheque Library. Zeitgeist Films is partnering with Films We Like to theatrically release the film in the US and Canada, beginning September 30th.
