Dockpojken Puppetboy

For more than a decade, an eccentric animator has worked on films featuring a little clay figure he calls "Puppetboy". Many hours of animation have been completed, yet very little has been made available to the public. Following the artist behind the scenes we discover a very intimate relationship between him an his protagonist.
