Synopsis

Elgin Park is a lot of things:  a 1950’s utopia, a fantastical world, and an optical illusion.  Artist Michael Paul Smith’s imaginative town – composed entirely of miniatures – delighted audiences worldwide when his photo series went viral. For the first time, the documentary Elgin Park dives into the life of this charming, reclusive artist to reveal the dark inspiration behind his work.
