Far Out Isn't Far Enough

SEE EVENT DETAILS
One man's wild, lifelong adventure of testing society's boundaries through his subversive art, Far Out Isn't Far Enough combines traditional documentary storytelling with original animation culled from seven decades worth of art from Tomi Ungerer, the renegade children's book author and illustrator. Ungerer was once a best-selling children's author in the U.S., but became an outcast after his wonderfully imaginative but sexually explicit erotica became known, not to mention his devastatingly powerful anti-war posters. The film offers a retrospective of Ungerer's life and art, and ponders 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 revolutionary voices during one of history's most dramatic periods. In addition to on-camera interviews with Ungerer, the film features the late, great Maurice Sendak, legendary children's book author and close friend; Jules Feiffer, syndicated Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and friend; and others. A graphic arts feast! Directed by Brad Bernstein.
