This hauntingly immersive AR exhibition meditating on the manifold permutations of desire, deception and death was the BFI Expanded commission for the 2022 London Film Festival. With his avant-garde style, Guy Maddin delicately envelops his audience in surreal paper worlds, exploring the hidden layers of human nature. Embracing an eclectic selection of clippings from his personal archive, Maddin’s Hotel hosts familiar pop culture figures alongside ecstatic 1960s nudists and frightened film noir actors. Set to an intricate soundscape by acclaimed composer Magnus Fiennes.
