In the Realms of the Unreal

This past weekend we also watched a documentary from our Net Flicks queue. "In the Realms of the Unreal," a documentary about outsider artist and writer Henry Darger. Henry Darger was a janitor who created another world when he was in the locked away inside his apartment. No one knew what he was doing in there, but when he passed away, a treasure trove was found. He wrote a 15,000+ page manuscript "In the Realms of the Unreal," along with several hundred illustrations. He also wrote an autobiography of 5000+ pages. If you have a chance you should check out this documentary. It is quite interesting, makes you think twice about those around you that go unnoticed.
