Minutes after watching Paris, je t’aime, Regina filmmaker Mark Wihak came up with an idea. “It’d be kind of funny to set an anthology film like that in Regina,” Wihak said to his partner Vanda Schmockel. And with that statement I Heart Regina was born— a feature-length motion picture comprised of 13 films by 14 directors that tells stories of lives being lived in Regina. In Paris, je t’aime, love is veiled, revealed, imitated, sucked dry, reinvented and awakened in the neighbourhoods of the French city. I Heart Regina, on the other hand, has a much broader focus. Not only is there love, there is also hate, anger, enlightenment and ennui, as well as the perils of cold, cold weather.
