Having found success creating compelling, and often, adult themed editorial cartoons, Mr. Fish may be the last great American outlaw artist. However his profession is on the way out. Editors previously willing to back controversial work are disappearing as fast as the newspapers which once employed him. Undeterred, Mr. Fish meets his plight head-on and with an abundance of creative energy, but the demands of raising a family overtake his freelance opportunities, and Mr. Fish is forced to make devastating choices. This documentary follows the artist as he struggles to stay true to his creativity in a world where biting satiric humor has an ever-diminishing commercial value.
Here’s your chance to see “Mr. Fish: Cartooning From the Deep End.” Its World Premiere will be taking place in the prestigious Austin Film Festival with filmmakers Pablo Bryant, director and Ted Collins, producer as well as Mr. Fish himself in attendance. Also joining us will be composer, Steven Bernstein. We hope to see y’all there!
