Synopsis

After a vicious attacks leaves him brain-damaged and broke, Mark Hogancamp seeks recovery in “Marwencol”, a 1/6th scale World War II-era town he creates in his backyard.

Our take

A fascinating plunge into a world historically inspired, yet crafted from the personal storytelling of its injured creator, this SXSW Grand Jury Award winner is a portrait of how fantasy can be therapeutic. It movingly reveals how personal trauma inevitably leaves traces in the creative process.
