Episode description: Reclusive janitor by day, visionary artist by night, outsider artist Henry Darger moved through life virtually unnoticed. But after his death, a treasure trove was discovered in his one-room Chicago apartment: a staggering 15,000-page novel and hundreds of illustrations that continue to inspire artists around the world. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Jessica Yu uses dreamlike animation, a haunting musical score, and poignant narration to explore Darger's startling universe of innocence and pain and show how he forged magic out of the bleakest of lives.
