We watched this documentary, Marwencol, in my art class today. The film is about how a man recovered from devastating injuries to express himself through brilliant model dioramas; in doing so, he rediscovers and recreates his identity.

I thought the movie was touching, inspiring, disturbing, uncomfortable, and worth watching. It was a visual and emotional experience.
It's available on DVD, Blu-ray, Netflix, and iTunes.
