Magical Universe

Documentarians discover a reclusive folk artist who uses Barbie dolls as his medium, and then engage in an awkward long-distance friendship in this enigmatic, Grey Gardens-esque film. Using Super-8, VHS camcorders, and I-Phones and taking over 10 years to complete, Magical Universe is the story of Al Carbee, a lonely, amiable artist who created complex dioramas for hundreds of Barbies in his sprawling, labyrinthine house. Obsessive, creepy, charming, and inspiring, Magical Universe illustrates how creativity can flourish in the most unlikely settings.
