Smallman Synopsis
John Ambrose Kenwyn Rawlins was an ordinary man of modest means. He was a good father, grandfather and husband; an obedient public servant. Yet the most vivid part of his life was lived in was a small workshop beneath his house. In there, at the end of his workday, he made things. From simple push toys to elaborate 1/16th scale waterline battle ship models and dockyards, miniature furniture and dolls houses, he painstakingly constructed everything from scratch, sometimes spending upwards of a year on a single model. Smallman is an exploration of the worlds, both real and imagined, that Kenwyn Rawlins made, as told by his son Richard.
“You could turn the sound off and still love Mariel Brown's Smallman because its first success is as a film, and it is overwhelmingly beautiful to look at; to call it "other worldly" is no exaggeration. The sound, though, adds the human dimension to the art as Richard Rawlins remembers his father and the world he made for them both, the one Mariel has remade for us all. This is a small film with a grand scale and a wide sweep. If you don't remember the best parts of your own childhood - and, indeed, your father - have your humanity levels checked.” BC Pires. (Pires has been writing about film from an informed lay perspective for 25 years.)
