The live-action animated film starring Bob Hoskins saw Richard Williams win a Bafta as well as two Oscars for his work.
Welcome To Marwen. It’s a dramatic retelling of the story first told in the acclaimed 2010 documentary Marwencol, of Mark Hogancamp, an artist whose life is changed forever when he’s dealt a brutal beating by a gang of thugs. The attack deprives Mark (played in the film by Steve Carell) of his memory and, as part of his therapy, the artist builds a toy WW2 town – Marwen – which he populates with dolls inspired by people in his life, and Hoagie, his doll avatar.
Screenwriters Peter Seaman and Jeffrey Price take us behind the scenes of the blockbuster that united Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny for the first, and last, time.
