THE GREEN FOG is a can't miss San Francisco film experience! Subtitled A SAN FRANCISCO FANTASIA, director Guy Maddin employs his mastery of assemblage to remake a “parallel-universe version" of Hitchcock's VERTIGO using Bay Area footage from a variety of sources — studio classics, ‘50s noir, experimental films, and ‘70s prime-time TV. The result is an intriguing cinematic adventure that exerts VERTIGO's tale of erotic obsession while paying tribute to our fair city.
THE GREEN FOG becomes equal parts cinema and musical extravaganza, with composer Jacob Garchik's entrancing score. San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet performs the musical work masterfully to tie a perfect Bay Area bow on this SFFILM commissioned film!
Directed by Evan Johnson, Galen Johnson & Guy Maddin. 63 min. DCP.
