What happens when your puppet master goes to meet his maker? Where is Kermit now Henson's in Heaven?
Here, with his sightless cousins, acting out a sad lament to what they have lost.
Seemingly blind Muppets try to operate their deceased puppeteer and search for a new meaning without him. Shot by students, as a homage to the late, great Jim Henson, this black-and-white study of mourning still manages to find space between the sorrow and the pity to capture the magic of a puppeteer's craft.
Strikingly original, it manages to tread a fine line between melancholy and macabre, sadness and celebration.
Watch it and be moved.Reviewed on: 01 Oct 2005
