IN THE REALMS OF THE UNREAL

Dir. Jessica Yu (USA: 2003), 81 min.
Henry Darger is an isolated janitor by day and an outsider artist by night. He worked his entire life virtually unnoticed. When he passed away in 1973, his landlords discovered his trove of artwork stashed away in his unit. A giant 15,000 page novel was discovered along with hundreds of illustrations. Academy Award winner Jessica Yu creates a beautiful film that describes his work and immerses the viewer in Darger’s vision of the universe.


Written and Directed by Jessica Yu, with narration by Dakota Fanning. In the Realms of the Unreal won the National Film Board Award for Best Documentary at the 2004 Vancouver International Film Festival.
