THE DWARVENAUT gives viewers a glimpse into the visionary mind of Brooklyn-based artist and entrepreneur Stefan Pokorny. Director Josh Bishop weaves together memories of Stefan’s tumultuous childhood with his modern day escapades to paint a mesmerizing portrait. An art prodigy obsessed from a young age with the game Dungeons & Dragons, Stefan navigates absurd adventures—from Midwestern game conventions to the canals of Venice to Bushwick dive bars—on a quest to bring his most ambitious miniature sculpture project to life through a multimillion dollar Kickstarter campaign. Part philosopher, part jester, he preaches the virtues of fantasy gaming as a vehicle for uniting the human race on his whimsical, bizarre life’s journey.
