‘Marwencol’ airs tonight on PBS

The film “Marwencol” by Jeff Malmberg, which tells the story of Kingston resident Mark Hogancamp, airs on PBS at 10 p.m. tonight.

In 2000, Hogancamp was violently attacked outside a bar in Kingston. After nine days in a coma and 40 days in the hospital, he was discharged with little memory of his previous life. Unable to afford therapy, he decided to create his own. In his backyard, he built Marwencol, a 1/6th scale World War II-era town that he populated with dolls representing his friends, family, and even his attackers.

P.S. In the film, Uptown is described as Downtown.
