A world-premiere online streaming event for all ages, Manual Cinema takes on Dickens’s holiday classic with an inventive adaptation made especially for 2020. From the isolation of her home, a holiday skeptic takes on the task of presenting a Christmas Carol puppet show for family over Zoom—but as she becomes more absorbed in her own version of the story, the puppets take on a life of their own, and the family’s call transforms into a stunning cinematic adaptation of Dickens’s classic ghost story.
Manuela Cinema’s adaptation was featured in the New York Times Bah, Pandemic! How Theaters Are Saving ‘A Christmas Carol’ and Chicago’s New City Magazine Larger Strokes: Manual Cinema Creates a Shadow Puppetry Christmas Carol for Our Time.
