Misophonia

A quiet bus ride turns into an aural nightmare for a book-reading commuter. Every stop the bus fills with people and sounds, becoming a chaotic cacophony of joy to everyone but her. Only when the bus finally reaches her seaside stop does she find escape, slipping back into the watery silence of her natural habitat, where we discover she is not the average commuter. Misophonia’s richly layered and textured world transcends the humble reused materials it’s made from. Filmed with live-performed puppetry on a multiplane stage, puppets made from pizza boxes elegantly move through cityscapes of vintage papers and painted cellophane, immersed in an ever-building atmosphere of sound. Misophonia is a 9 minute film by The Stringpullers Puppet Company, written and directed by Linda Wingerter, commissioned by Heather Henson’s Handmade Puppet Dreams Film Series.
