home_cooked_musicWinnipeg filmmaker Mike Maryniuk‘s Home Cooked Music profiles inventor and craftsman Lorne Collie and his whimsical stringed instruments – made out of unlikely items such as shovels, rakes, baseball bats, and stop signs. In Lorne’s hands, these everyday items become beautiful and functional guitars, violins, banjos, and fiddles.  The film is described as “a whimsical chord of Canadiana.” by POV Magazine.

Mike Maryniuk was born in Winnipeg, but raised in the rural back country of Manitoba. A completely self-taught film virtuoso, Maryniuk’s film world is an inventive hybrid of Jim Henson, Norman McLaren and Stan Brakhage. Maryniuk’s films are a visual stew of hand-made ingredients and are full of home cooked wonderfulness. — núna

The film screened at HotDocs 2015 and is now available on NFB’s website.
