Deeply moving, Marionette Land is a feature-length documentary about the Lancaster Marionette Theatre and its artistic director, founder and star Robert Brock.
For thirty years, Brock has been entertaining families with his creative and unique one-man marionette productions of classics like The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan. He also straps on his heels for some grown-up shows where he performs as famous Hollywood divas like Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli and Carol Channing.
Robert lives above his puppet theatre with his mom and business partner, Mary Lou. When new challenges suddenly emerge as he enters the self-proclaimed third act of his life, the future of their beloved theater is called into question – and their time at this crossroads is beautifully captured in this touching new film.
Director Alexander Monelli previously captured the spirit of Robert Brock and his marionette theatre back in 2014 with the short film Man With Puppet. The new version will goes even deeper into Robert’s story, personality and artistry, as well as the community that holds his work so dear.
