POV - Season 18, Episode 7 - Rotten Tomatoes

In the Realms of the Unreal


Episode Info

"In the Realms of the Unreal" peeks into the good-vs.-evil fantasy world of Henry Darger (1892-1973), a reclusive janitor whose writings and artwork were found in his one-room Chicago apartment after his death. And quite a trove it was: hundreds of paintings (some seen in animated form) and a 15,000-page chronicle of warfare between a Christian children's army led by seven "Vivian girls" and the godless Glandelinians.
