Renowned children’s book author and illustrator Peter Sís will introduce the film.
Screening of Brad Bernstein’s award-winning 2012 documentary Far Out Isn't Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story.
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. This 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 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.
