A part of Heather Henson's Ibex Puppetry, Handmade Puppet Dreams is a traveling film series that promotes independent artists exploring their handmade craft specifically for the screen. These films all focus on real-time puppetry, and allow artists to build their vision, and then breathe life into their dreams. 

With this series, Heather Henson has set out to showcase a new generation of puppeteers and puppet artists who embrace film as a medium for artistic expression. 

Join Alex U. Griffin here at Take Root Cafe for a variety of specially curated films from their collection. Originally from Iowa, Alex is the Film Coordinator (and an occasional cinematographer and content creator) for Handmade Puppet Dreams, Vice President of the Los Angeles Guild of Puppetry, and a Director at Large for the Puppeteers of America. Writing about puppet events and films, Alex is a columnist for the Puppetry Journal, and contributes to the LA Guild of Puppetry's Puppet Life. 

Alex will be available afterward for a discussion of these creative films.
