A lovely balance of melancholy and hope in this documentary short by director-editor Matt Pizzano and producer-cinematographer Nic Wehmeyer. While Mark Bennett became known as they guy who spent his time creating painstakingly detailed floor plans of his favourite 1950s tv homes, the attention soon unearthed some of the darker aspects of living so deeply within fantasy. “The Grass is Always Greener on TV” explores how Bennett’s obsession with these idyllic imaginary worlds became a way of escaping an isolated life and how traumatic memories became the source of his art.
