Marwencol Documentary Review. This story is amazing. A man who was severely beaten suffered brain damage and created a world for himself fashioned from toys he has either bought or created. The Marwencol documentary itself doesn't necessarily stand out in its production value. But the story itself and even better, the stories he has created for all of the characters in his fictional world are amazing. While I don't have full knowledge of how this documentary came into being, I can't help but think serendipity played a role.
I recommend this film. It gives great insight into the resilience of the human mind and how it finds ways to cope with trauma.

I just wanted to say that I think your website is amazing. I am a beginner with an idea, and the info and articles on your website are easy to understand and answer many questions I have. I can't wait to start filming!

I am a professional filmmaker, and I applaud this site for detailing the ABC's of documentary filmmaking. It serves as my own checklist as I continue making my own films... Thanks!
