Marwencol: An Acclaimed Movie About Photography and an Imaginary World


We love sharing about photography-related movies that you might want to add to your “films to watch” list, and today we have a great one: Marwencol. It’s a documentary about Mark Hogancamp, a man who was beaten nearly to death back in 2000 outside a bar (leaving him little memory of his previous life), and how he turned to photographing action figures in a miniature world as a form of “art therapy”. The photographs — which you can browse here — are incredible in their realism and creativity, and attracted the attention of magazines and art galleries.

The movie scored a ridiculous 98% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes, and is available on NetFlix (might be a little difficult to find outside NetFlix).

Thanks for the tip, Dave!
