Marwencol (Jeff Malmberg | Los Angeles/New york | 83 min.)

Official Link: http://www.marwencol.com/

Mark Hogancamp miraculously survives a senseless beating outside a bar only to emerge from a coma with memory loss and brain damage. Unable to afford therapy, he creates his own, right in his backyard. He begins to build Marwencol, a remarkable WWII-era town at 1/16 scale. He populates the sets with dolls representing his friends and family, and even his attackers, in an attempt to heal the psychic wounds from his beating. In dramatic scenes, his alter ego fighter pilot triumphs over evil. But when photographs of his stunning, meticulous work are published in an art magazine, the reclusive victim becomes an instant "artist." With a deft camera that confuses inner and outer life, filmmaker Jeff Malmberg creates a moody, hauntingly original film that captures the crux of Hogancamp's crisis: will he choose between his fantasy life or the real world he's carefully avoided? - Myrocia Watamaniuk
