After being brutally attacked outside a bar and recovering from a coma and extensive physical injuries, Mark Hogancamp suffered brain damage and nearly total memory loss. Unable to afford therapy he spent the next few years building a scale model, World War II-era town, Marwencol, populated with dolls, where he lived out his fantasy life, and which he documented in photographs. When his photographs were discovered by an art magazine, a New York gallery invited him to show his work, forcing him to choose between his self-contained world and the larger world from which he had retreated.

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.
