Independent Filmmaker/Puppet Film Shorts

HANDMADE PUPPET DREAMS

FRIDAY, January 22, 8 PM AT OWL GLASS PUPPETRY CENTER, WEST LIBERTY Tickets $5.00

Handmade Puppet Dreams, a series of short films collected and curated by Heather Henson (Jim Henson’s daughter).  This is an opportunity for lovers of puppet theatre and film to see cutting edge pieces directed towards older youth and adults.  Heather Henson introduces independent filmmakers and puppeteers who explore their craft specifically for the camera in this handpicked selection of puppet film shorts.

Handmade Puppet Dreams showcases fresh voices who embrace film as their medium and breathe life into their dreams, while exploring a spectrum of live-action puppetry styles, including stop-action, object theater and many others.  Since 2005, Handmade Puppet Dreams has been screened nationally, where it received a UNIMA Citation of Excellence, (the top puppetry award in the US), and internationally in France, the Czech Republic, India, United Kingdom, Puerto Rico, Israel and Prague, where it was awarded “The Best Puppet Film” at The World Puppet Festival.  Although directed at adults for some mature content, these films are also appropriate for older teens.

Seating is limited, purchase your tickets early to guarantee seats.  For further information, call (319) 627-2487 or email monica@puppetspuppets.com.  Check www.puppetspuppets.com for schedules and updates.

The Owl Glass Adult Series is supported in part by a grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine.
