Guillermo Del Toro was in the Twin Cities last week for the opening of a new exhibit at Minneapolis Institute of Arts, titled, Guillermo Del Toro: At Home With Monsters.
The exhibition includes more than 500 pieces, most of them from Del Toro's personal collection at his home, Bleak House. Mia's own collection is also represented, and the cumulative effect of At Home With Monsters is magnificent. The exhibit runs at Mia until May 28th.
Del Toro contains one of the most gifted cinematic imaginations of our time, and At Home With Monsters is a rare opportunity to peer inside the obsessive nature of that imagination.
While Del Toro was in town, Chris had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with Guillermo and a few other journalists for a wide-ranging conversation about his work, his life, and what he thinks of the direction the US is taking right now.
Find out why Del Toro's grandmother performed an exorcism on him, and what his personal favorite Del Toro projects are.
We hope you enjoy this very special episode of Double Exposure.
