Trailer Tuesday - Marwencol
Yesterday I started a new section called Music Monday dedicated to music, and today I'd like to present another new addition to my blog, Trailer Tuesday. I will share trailers of new movies I'm looking forward to seeing and once in a while I might look back at some old favourites.
For the first Trailer Tuesday, I'd like to share with you Marwencol. A friend mentioned it to me a few months ago and I hope to watch it soon.
About the film:
"Marwencol" is a documentary about the fantasy world of Mark Hogancamp.
After being beaten into a brain-damaging coma by five men outside a bar, Mark builds a 1/6th scale World War II-era town in his backyard. Mark populates the town he dubs "Marwencol" with dolls representing his friends and family and creates life-like photographs detailing the town's many relationships and dramas. Playing in the town and photographing the action helps Mark to recover his hand-eye coordination and deal with the psychic wounds of the attack. When Mark and his photographs are discovered, a prestigious New York gallery sets up an art show. Suddenly Mark's homemade therapy is deemed "art", forcing him to choose between the safety of his fantasy life in Marwencol and the real world that he's avoided since the attack.
