Forming the Formless

Filmmaker Genevieve Anderson's individually designed puppets and miniature sets.

Filmmaker Genevieve Anderson makes films that explore human experiences using puppets.

Filmmaker Genevieve Anderson's career has not followed a traditional path, but she doesn't make traditional films. Using individually designed puppets and miniature sets, Anderson makes movies that explore themes of loneliness and compassion, qualities that she has time to reflect on in her home studio space. She has settled down in Tubac, Arizona, with chickens, a duck, a very large dog, and her 8-year old son Roman.

Producers: Mark McLemore & Sandra Westdahl
