Monkeys in space, scary clowns, hoarders and Meryl Streep.

Curated by Heather Henson (yes, that Henson), Handmade Puppet Dreams celebrates independent animators working in the DIY tradition, with a focus on crafting works specifically for film. This series of 14 shorts features marionettes, shadow puppetry, digital animation and good ol’ fuzzy puppets, in works that are whimsical, thoughtful and bizarre. Catch the voice talent of Meryl Streep, Forest Whitaker and Spike Jonze in a re-telling of Maurice Sendak’s Higgley Piggley Pop.
