  2. one of my first films (made in 1997, finalized in '99) this piece was constructed with 1960's era 16mm footage found in the dumpster of a Portland Television station. before I had the opportunity to optically print the film, I would screen the original, hand manipulated film print and play the soundtrack on a separate device, literally switching on the projector and pressing play on a boom-box at the same time.

  3. Henry Darger was born in Chicago in 1892 and spent much of his childhood in a home for feeble-minded children. As an adult, he lived a solitary life, supporting himself as a janitor, living in a single room. Upon his death in 1973, hundreds of paintings, many of which were over 10 feet long and double-sided, a 15,145 page single-spaced novel, an autobiography, and thousands of pages from journals were discovered in his humble room. No one except Darger himself, had known this work existed.

    Darger's monumental novel of illustrations and words, The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion is a rich and complex imaginary world. The novel tells the story of seven sisters who are princesses of the Christian nation of Abbieannia who lead a child slave revolt against the evil Glandelinians.

    Many of the paintings depict naked hermaphroditic girls, which at first glance makes their beauty disturbing, but Darger's innocence is apparent as well. Just as his Vivian Girls were virtuous, Darger strove to be like them, attending mass and taking Communion every day.

    This film explores outsider art from the inside. Eschewing expert opinion, it reflects the uniqueness of its subject, with vivid animation and experimental elements to immerse us in Darger’s world and all its strange beauty. Dakota Fanning and Larry Pine narrate.
