MARWENCOL

Don’t miss Marwencol Monday night at a/perture.  This engrossing documentary is part of the cineclub series, so it’s in town for only one night, December 13 at 8 p.m.

Director Jeff Malmberg’s documentary is about the fantasy world created by Mark Hogancamp after he suffers a terrible beating by five men outside of a bar, a beating that leaves him with permanent brain damage.

Rather than go into the story more now, take a look at this published interview with Malmberg: http://laist.com/2010/06/17/laist_interview_marwencol_director.php

Malmberg treats Hogancamp with great dignity but still manages to bring viewers inside the world he creates, Marwencol, while revealing Hogancamp’s humanity and his artistry in a surprisingly accessible way. I really liked this film a lot.
