Synopsis

The magical journey to the world of puppets with wonderful participating of great master Meschke and Irene Jacob.

Michael Meschke is one of the the greatest living marionette masters in the world. His marionette masterpieces are the pretext to delve into his own life and the stories behind his numerous international creations. The life of an incredible, complex human being. Born in Poland to German parents, Meshke has lived in France and Sweden. By a prophet German poet, Jochen Klepper, he was told as a little boy that he would become a puppet master. Now he is 80 years old, and while sitting in the cellars of a Stockholm Museum, beside collections that have travelled on many world adventures, he is dreaming. The Marionetteatern has been the cultural ambassador of Sweden for over 60 years. It introduced the art of puppetry to modern Europe and brought back into the universal dimension characters like Antigone, Don Quixote, Odysseus, Faust, so significant to human nature and in fact symbolising the struggle of virtue against vice.
