MR. FISH: CARTOONING FROM THE DEEP END
DOC NYC, IDFA, Hot Docs, Slamdance, Big Sky Doc, Salem, Ashland, Florida
A radical political cartoonist faces the possibility that he must compromise his values to sustain his art.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Mr Fish is a talented political cartoonist known for his subversive and often controversial art. But what happens to an outspoken artist when his once-supportive editors, faced with a vanishing industry, are no longer able to provide a forum for his sardonic take on the world? With a family to support, will Mr. Fish be able to stay true to his principles, or will he be forced to sell himself out in order to sell his art?
