FAR OUT ISN’T FAR ENOUGH: THE TOMI UNGERER STORY

2012 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Brad Bernstein (first screening only)

US PREMIERE Tomi Ungerer rose to prominence in the late 1950s as the creator of acclaimed children’s books—”I dare say, no one was as original,” Maurice Sendak once ventured. Ungerer’s creativity also encompassed iconic 60s protest posters and lavish books of erotica; but when his work was banned, he risked fading into obscurity. This film performs a laudable act of rediscovery by capturing his incredible personality on camera and bringing his artwork to life through enchanting animated sequences.
