Kilkenny, Ireland: Gary Groth Interview with Tomi Ungerer

February 25, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm PST

  • This event has passed.

A unique opportunity to see the award-winning documentary about the life and work of Tomi Ungerer in the company of the man himself, followed by an interview with Gary Groth, founder of Fantagraphics Books and editor-in-chief of The Comics Journal.

Far Out Isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story depicts one man’s wild, lifelong adventure of testing societal boundaries through his use of subversive art. The film combines traditional documentary storytelling with original animation from over 70 years worth of art from the renegade children’s book author and illustrator. Using a historical palette of 20th century events to paint an artist’s epic yet controversial life story, this HD documentary film offers a feature-length retrospective of Ungerer’s life and art, pondering the complexities and contradictions of a man who, armed with an acerbic wit, an accusing finger and a razor sharp pencil, gave visual representation to the revolutionary voices during one of the most tantalizing and dramatic periods in American history.
