The Mysterious Henry Darger



In her new film, "In the Realms of the Unreal: The Mystery of Henry Darger", currently playing at New York's Film Forum, writer/director/producer Jessica Yu avoids psychoanalyzing the fascinating but peculiar Henry Darger and encourages audiences to be equally nonjudgmental. Here she speaks of the artist's preoccupations with war, Catholicism, and the weather with Elise MacAdam and Brooke Anderson, curator for the American Folk Art Museum, a center for Darger scholarship. Together they supply a number of remarkable insights into Darger's work and his very complicated sense of humor.
