Event Description
THE MAN WHO  MADE ANGELS FLY

Dir. WiktoriaSzymanska (68min, Poland/UK/France, 2013)
In Polish with English Subtitles
Documentary
US Premiere

Renowned puppeteer Michael Meschke and his family escaped from Nazi Germany to Sweden when he was a young boy. His childhood experience, and family lore, informed his philosophically rich marionette work, and over six decades he built up a collection of over 3,000 puppets. Each has its own unique story and unmistakable personality: the charismatic Don Quixote; the lovely Penelope; the inquisitive Baptiste, and the mysterious Antigone.


Rather than using traditional biopic narration to push the story along, director WiktoriaSzyma?skadefers to the power of suggestion, focusing on Meschke’s uncanny ability to breathe real life into his puppets.
