PUPPET (2010, 74 min. dir. David Soll) 

Puppet is a feature-length documentary that interweaves a broad look at the fraught history of American puppetry (its marginalization as children’s theater and its sudden explosion as high art) with an intimate thread following Dan Hurlin, a downtown artist who is creating a complex puppet work about Mike Disfarmer – an eccentric, Depression-era photographer. Dan has just recovered from a scorching New York Times review, which forced his last show out of theaters prematurely. Now he faces a wider backlash against puppetry, suggesting an eerie parallel between himself and his new puppet-subject – an outsider artist whose stunning body of work was very nearly lost forever.

Launched in January 2011, DecaturDocs is a screening and discussion series centered around the engaging world on non-fiction and documentary films.  


The monthly subscription-based screening series promises to engage, educate and entertain Decatur’s diverse community, while attracting thoughtful audiences from throughout the region to downtown Decatur. 


A celebration of the vitality of non-fiction film, DecaturDocs provides a platform for audiences to engage in provocative dialog about meaningful ideas in a creative and interactive film festival atmosphere. 


DecaturDocs is a social happening, a quintessential gathering of the minds, and a “don’t miss” cultural experience.

Accompanied by a filmmaker, featured subject, or thought leader, every screening will followed by an interactive, informative, educational, topical discussion.
