Liz, the below is a Darger film showing at the Seattle film festival on June 1. Maybe you can catch it somewhere.

In the Realms of the Unreal
USA, 2003, 81 minutes

Henry Darger was a man who kept to himself. When he died in 1973, his landlords discovered hundreds of illustrations and a 15,000 page novel about seven little girls waging war against evil men. Incorporating his artwork into her film, Jessica Yu transports us into the world of Darger's imagination.

Lucius, thanks -- I'll definitely look for it. Should be interesting. Maybe the Disney Channel will run it during Fall Sweeps Week!

Liz, there's a review of the film (minimal) on my topic. The director had the good judgment not to interview any "experts" or shrinks, and apparently intercuts life and art, trying to get the audience into his reality....FWIW.
