"Winnipeg filmmaker Guy Maddin has written an intriguing and near-scandalous autobiography--a can't-put-it-down read. The autobiography features a diabolical plot surrounding acoward on a mission that resembles a cycle of dark spectacles dressed up a s, among other things, lewd seduction, Canadian hockey, murder, amputations, hair design, general mayhem, fetish attractions and heartfelt loss. ... The Power Plant is pleased to support this genre-bending autobiography that accompanies the commissioned installation of ten short films derived from Guy Maddin's script Cowards Bend the Knee. This undertaking is inspired by Power Plant curator Philip Monk who encouraged Guy to meddle both with writing an autobiography and applying the resulting films to a gallery installation." -- from Director's foreword, page 9.
