Mark Hogancamp is the very definition of an outsider artist. After being beaten into a brain-damaging coma by five strangers outside a bar, Mark decided to come up with his own form of therapy. His solution? To build an entire one-sixth-scale World War II-era town in his backyard. By photographing the lives of his imaginary, 12-inch townspeople in stunningly realistic tableaux, Hogancamp hoped to restore some of his hand-eye coordination and recover from the psychic damage of the attack. In the process, as this eye-opening documentary chronicles, he attracted the attention of a prestigious New York gallery. In the end, Hogancamp must choose between the safety of his imaginary world and the fame and fortune of real life. Fascinating, odd and gorgeous all at the same time. 83 minutes Unrated.
