We Are Here (2021). Directed by Marc Levy of THE MARCS, 60 min., NR

This documentary about local artists trying to save the world follows the Paperhand Puppet Intervention community and investigates their intention and process as they aim to move us to action through moving art.

Follow along as the company embarks on its remarkable creative journey and take a deep dive into the psyches of the company’s founders Donovan Zimmerman and Jan Burger and the diverse group of artists who help bring the show to life. It takes a whole lot more than cardboard, wood, duct tape, and string to make a great show. In We Are Here, we find out what makes a puppet come to life, and we are challenged to reconsider our own place in the world.

A discussion and Q and A with the filmmaker and some special guests follow the screening.
