Thurs­day, 9pm, Stu­dio This fea­ture-length doc­u­men­tary fol­lows the progress of artist and pho­tog­ra­pher Mark Ho­gan­camp fol­low­ing a near fa­tal beat­ing by thugs out­side a bar that left him brain dam­aged and strug­gling, at 38, to walk and talk again. When his Amer­i­can health in­sur­ance ran out, he was caught short with­out the ther­apy that had been pro­pel­ling his re­cov­ery. So he de­cided to cre­ate his own psy­cho­log­i­cal ther­apy by build­ing a scale World War II Bel­gian town in his back­yard, pop­u­lat­ing it with dolls rep­re­sent­ing him­self, his friends and even his at­tack­ers. The film was show­ered in awards on re­lease in 2010.
