Guy Maddin and Evan and Galen Johnson are hired to film the making of Hyena Road, the latest war film by Paul Gross. Even if that sounds unlikely to you, you’re still in for a surprise! Lost deep in the Jordanian desert, Maddin soon realizes he is not the right man to make a promotional documentary. So he decides to create his own cinematic essay on war movies. Demonstrating his caustic wit and sarcasm, he tries one formal experiment after another, turning the filming into a psychedelic videogame of epic proportions. The film, which flits easily from fake confessions to vintage sci-fi, and manages to connect Sun Tzu and Guy Lafleur, is possibly the wildest making-of movie of all time.
