"Puppet" 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 created a complex puppet work called "Disfarmer" based on the life of Depression-era portrait photographer, Mike Disfarmer. Hurlin's struggle to mount the show has an eerie parallel to his subject whose stunning body of work was very nearly lost forever.
