Meet Mario “the Magician” Marchese: husband, father, performer, maker, inventor, artist, creator. In some ways reminiscent of old-time vaudevillians, Mario is much more than a throwback. Building Magic is about a wandering traveler turned full-time maker magician and his menagerie of monkeybots, suitcase machines and other odd and not so odd inventions. Prepare to be amazed. 2015, USA, 81 minutes

Best of Fest: Alexandria Film Festival.

After the film, Meet the Filmmakers: Mario Marchese and Director Kal Toth in discussion with LoHud’s Christine Gritmon.

Then, Meet the Maker: Stay for a rare demonstration of some of Mario’s inventions.

“This is one of those great meetings of art and technology that illuminates the maker movement so well.” – Make Magazine
