The Puppetman from Ema Ryan Yamazaki on Vimeo.
This short documentary from Ema Ryan Yamazaki is entirely too short. It feels more like a trailer for a full length upcoming film. The story of David, a puppet maker in Hell's Kitchen, grabs you from the first second and builds throughout its two minute sprawl. Why is he going to be homeless? Why has he never sold more puppets? How did he become a hoarder? What else is in that apartment he's lived in for 39 years? There are just too many questions left unanswered. We want to see Ema go back and do a much longer cut of this so we can know more about David and his story.
