Brand Upon the Brain! (2006) Gretchen Krich, Sullivan Brown, Maya Lawson, Katherine E. Scharhon, Todd Moore. In the weird and wonderful super-cinematic world of Canadian cult filmmaker Guy Maddin, personal memory collides with movie lore for a radical sensory overload. This eerie excursion into the gothic recesses of Maddin's mad, imaginary childhood is a silent, black-and-white comic science-fiction nightmare set in a lighthouse on grim Notch Island, where fictional protagonist Guy Maddin was raised by an ironfisted, puritanical mother.

The RAF was desperate for planes and their supply of U.S. aircraft, sent on ship convoys, had been sunk in the icy Atlantic by German U-boats. In response, a remarkable decision was made -- to fly the planes across the ocean. Because of U.S. neutrality, a message went out through the "aviation grapevine" only -- that a secret operation in Montreal needed experienced civilian pilots ... to pilot the planes to Great Britain. These "cowboys of the air" are the forgotten heroes of WWII, men who embodied the improvisational spirit that was key to the Allied victory. (WGBH Boston Video).
