'Of Dolls & Murder'

In May of 2009 while searching for videos on YouTube for my other blog, Creating Dollhouse Miniatures, I came across a preview of a documentary film inspired by the Nutshell Studies.  The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death were a series of intricately designed dollhouse-style dioramas created by Frances Glessner Lee. See the preview HERE.  Indie filmmakers Susan Marks and John Kurtis Dehn, just completed making the film, Of Dolls & Murder, an intimate look at dollhouse crime scenes. In September 2010, they released the film's trailer, you can see it HERE. The video below is from PBS, a conversation with director Susan Marks. I have searched and searched but have been unable to find a release date of the film but as soon as I do, I will post it.

Thanks for sharing. Great video. I have been anxiously awaiting this documentary to come out. I am not a "movie" person, but I'll be one of the first in line for this showing.

Great video...thanks for sharing. It is a new twist on how miniatures can be used to solve murders...I never knew that.
