'Marvelous and the Black Hole' - Variety Sundance Studio

Writer and director Kate Tsang described “Marvelous and the Black Hole” as a “coming-of-age” film about a teenage delinquent (Miya Cech) who befriends a kid’s party magician (Rhea Perlman) who helps her navigate her dysfunctional family and inner demons with the help of sleight of hand magic. The movie, which premieres at this year’s virtual Sundance Film Festival, is inspired by relationship’s Tsang with her grandfather. The film was inspired by Tsang’s relationship with her grandfather, however, the director and writer didn’t know a lot about the art of magic, so she took a class. “Through magic I ended up finding my community,” Tsang said.
