Outside a small bar in Kingston, NY, Mark Hogancamp was beaten nearly to death, his memories wiped away. Seeking recovery, he builds Marwencol, a miniature World War II-era town filled with doll versions of his friends, fantasies, and even his attackers. As he documents the town's dramas with his camera, the dolls become living characters in an epic tale of love, adventure, resurrection and revenge. When his photos are discovered by the art world, Mark is suddenly forced to choose between the safety of his imaginary world and the real world he's avoided since the attack

A truly unique and riveting first story. I first saw this at the Seattle Film Festival in 2009 and still remember it so vividly!

My husband and I love documentaries and this is one of our favorites: compelling, sad, funny, really interesting

I caught this on PBS a few days ago, it certainly was very interesting to see how the building of the doll town Marwencol really helped Mark in a theraputic manner. I was impressed by the amount of detail he included in the town and was surprised by some of Mark's behaviours. All in all, it was well directed movie and it is well worth a watch.
