“Mark Hogancamp was attacked outside of a bar by five men who beat him nearly to death after he told them he was a cross-dresser.” “Not the full outfit – just the legs and feet, nylons and heels. I didn’t wear the stuff out in public,” he says. “I kept it very secret. But I got talking to these guys…”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “WELCOME TO MARWEN tells the true story of one broken man’s fight as he discovers how artistic imagination can restore the human spirit.
When a devastating attack shatters Mark Hogancamp (Carell) and wipes away all memories, no one expected recovery. Putting together pieces from his old and new life, Mark meticulously creates a wondrous town where he can heal and be heroic. As he builds an astonishing art installation—a testament to the most powerful women he knows—through his fantasy world, he draws strength to triumph in the real one.
In a bold, wondrous and timely film from this revolutionary pioneer of contemporary cinema, ‘Welcome to Marwen’ shows that when your only weapon is your imagination… you’ll find courage in the most unexpected place.”
