The meeting of Guy Maddin, Gustav Mahler and Bram Stoker. A cinema adaptation of a ballet, the film looks more like a dramatic work than a simple choreography. Combining sensual dance, mimed scenes and intertitles reminiscent of silent cinema, it is performed with passion by the dancers of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
Filmed in Super8, 16mm and Super16, then edited on video, “Dracula” was transferred to 35mm in front of its international success. The film has been shown at numerous festivals, winning several awards including the Grand Prix at the Sitges Fantastic Film Festival.

“There is strong public pressure for image and sound to serve mundane realism, a strong demand to have films that are identical to real life. But we are living real life. When we read a book, we want to be transported to wonderful places, and some of the most memorable stories we have ever been told are the ones we listen to as children huddled under blankets ... 'Would we not be exercising this tradition of childhood in adult forms that would give off those emotions that children feel. That's the goal I've set for all the movies I want to make. " (Guy Maddin)
