MAGICAL UNIVERSE is a strange and moving portrait of Al Carbee, an 88-year-old outsider artist who spends all his days alone in a massive house in Maine creating outlandish works of art -- mostly featuring Barbie Dolls in complex dioramas. The documentary profiles Carbee's amazing body of work and his relentlessly creative lifestyle. Al's unique story is told through the prism of his life-changing friendship with the film’s director -- revealing the astoundingly powerful role of companionship and creativity in the human mind while emphasizing the importance of mutual inspiration. At its core, MAGICAL UNIVERSE is about wonder, friendship, and the transcendent power of creativity. The film culminates with Carbee’s greatest triumph: the day when Carbee's Barbies are briefly revealed to the world.
