Project Information
  Ma Liang (aka Maleonn), creator, director & chief puppet designer
  Papa's Time Machine is inspired by Maleonn's father's Alzheimer’s-related amnesia, and is dedicated to him. Told with life size puppets, the story explores the love between father and son, and discusses the topic of death. As the father descends into Alzheimer’s Disease, the son tries to create a machine that will help him preserve his happy memories of their time together. Maleonn invented his own puppetry system with a unique visual style and structure. The adult puppet is 160cm in height, composed of 1252 parts, while the child puppet is 112cm in height, composed of 1028 parts. Maleonn also created the many extraordinary creatures for the puppets’ world.
