“Magical Universe” is a portrait of Albert Nickerson Carbee, a strange 80-something year old outsider artist living alone in a ramshackle converted barn in the fading town of Saco, Maine. Al spends each and every day in this massive home creating elaborate photographs and collage art - most of which feature Barbie Dolls in provocative yet complex dioramas. When New York filmmaker Jeremy Workman and his girlfriend Astrid arrive at Al’s doorstep for a somewhat randomly unplanned visit in the late 1990’s, the course is set for an unusual and wondrous decade-long friendship between Al and Jeremy -- an unlikely pairing in which the filmmaker would grow to become Carbee's closest friend and his only link to the outside world. “Magical Universe” profiles Carbee's amazing body of work and his relentlessly creative lifestyle, told through the prism of Al’s strange but intensely meaningful friendship with Jeremy and Astrid. The film culminates with Al Carbee’s greatest triumph as an artist and man -- a remarkable moment when Carbee’s Barbies are briefly revealed to the world. At its core “Magical Universe” is about the transcendent power of friendship and creativity.
