Hi everyone, I'm Mark Hogancamp's niece. I've read a lot of the comments here and I see that a lot of people are wondering why they are using Nazis in this movie. They are literally taking Mark's life and turning it into a movie. He was attacked at a bar after telling some guys that he liked to wear women's clothes. He then used the dolls as therapy to help him recover from the trauma of the attack. He built a small town, which he called Marwencol, in his backyard and began photographing the dolls within the town. He created a whole fictional world based on his life and a lot of people he knows. He's very into WWII, so he used Nazis to represent the men that beat him at the bar. In the story he created, he and the people of Marwencol try to stop and defeat the "Nazi's." This helped him unleash the anger he had built up towards the men who attacked him, and it also helped him to regain control of his hands. Mark was always a very talented and creative guy, but the attack left him with shaky hands, and he had a very hard time making art. Years of doing this has helped him immensely, and he has started drawing again. I have not seen this film yet, but this film comes from a documentary about Mark called Marwencol. The documentary explains everything, and even tells Mark's fictional story that he created. I hope this clears some things up.

Looks like the movie will definitely include the fact that Mark liked to wear women’s shoes. If you look closely in trailer #1, Mark is placing a pair of heels next to Hoagie’s bed. Also, Steve Carrell was on Jimmy Fallon recently and they showed a clip from the film. At the end of the clip, the shot pans out and Mark’s alter ego doll Hoagie is wearing a pair of heels. Glad they are keeping this fact in the story.

My uncle was beaten to almost death when he was the same age as I am 24, in republic of Georgia_By gang trying to take his belongings. His had was bashed with ak47's stock (handle). He was found laying on the street choking on his blood halfway passed out. Right after being hospitalized he fell into coma for weeks.
When I was born he already had psychotic disorder, personality disorders and was suffering from schizophrenia. I remember at age of 8, my grandma gave him a soup at the table, he looked at it and looked up from total disbelieve and disappointment, he started crying like a child. then he got up and started yelling as loud as he could at my grandma saying "Why the Fuck did you poison the soup! why do you want to kill me. you are my mother, how could you!" unfortunately he didnt play with toys or had new memories to make. all he did was walk around the house smoke cigarettes nonstop and talked to himself about that night where his horror started. Soon after my uncle Alex an my grandpa got into a fist fight he was sent to the mental hospital. He's been there for 16 years drugged out, confused and abandoned from everyone, reliving his worst nightmare everyday, because he remembers. I have visited him twice few years ago, without letting family know, but he remembers me as a child yet when he saw me he thought i was imposer and was lying about my identity. I dont know why i wrote this or who the fuck would ever read this, just this trailer reminded me of my uncle suffering ... every moment of his life for for something he never deserved.

All this because of a beating. Maybe Antifa should stop attacking people. I’m tired of all violence.
