Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre presents another of Heather Henson’s collections of puppet film shorts, “Handmade Puppet Dreams.” This independently produced collection features the work of puppeteers who explore their craft specifically for the camera. See the shorts at their West Liberty premier on Friday, December 7th, at 8:00 pm at Owl Glass Puppetry Center, 319 North Calhoun, West Liberty, Iowa. Tickets cost $6.00 each. Although directed at adults, these films will appeal to teens as well.
This event makes up a part of Owl Glass Puppetry Center’s annual Adult Series. It presents an opportunity for lovers of puppet theatre and film to see cutting edge pieces directed towards adults. Heather Henson introduces a variety of independent filmmakers and puppeteers in this hand-picked selection of puppet film shorts. “Handmade Puppet Dreams” showcases fresh voices who embrace film as their medium and breathe life into their dreams. The shorts explore a wide spectrum of live-action puppetry styles, including stop-action, object theater, and many others.
Since 2005, “Handmade Puppet Dreams” has 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, the United Kingdom, Puerto Rico, and Israel. In Prague, Czech Republic, it earned Best Puppet Film at the World Puppet Festival.
