Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, "In the Realms of the Unreal" recreates the incredible fantasy world of self-taught artist Henry Darger and is narrated by actress Dakota Fanning. Henry Darger grew up in an asylum, worked as a janitor during his adulthood, and died penniless and alone. Upon his death, his landlords entered his room and discovered over 300 paintings and a 15,000 page illustrated work full of disturbing and mysteriously beautiful images. Considered a prominent outsider artist, Darger has been the subject of numerous exhibitions, and has inspired theater, fashion, art and literature.

Come and see this great new film and meet the awesome Jessica Yu!
