Manual Cinema “The Magic City”
Loosely adapted from Edith Nesbit’s 1910 fantasy novel, The Magic City tells the story of nine year-old Philomena, whose great love is building miniature structures out of books, toys and found objects. Left alone in a vast mansion belonging to her sister’s fiancé, Philomena secludes herself in the attic where she builds a miniature city, later awaking to discover that the city has come alive. Projections, shadow puppets, live actors, miniature toy theater and live musical accompaniment bring this modern fantasy life with whimsy, wit and a world of imagination. “Manual Cinema’s Magic City lets everyone in”The Chicago Tribune
