It’s not Hollywood, but I am among several cartoonists featured in a very fine documentary about cartoonists of The New Yorker, entitled “Very Semi-Serious,” that had its premiere in the Tribeca Film Festival last Sunday, April 19th at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center.
The screening was preceded by red carpet hoopla and followed by a Q&A, in which I participated, along with Bob Mankoff, the magazine’s cartoon editor, fellow cartoonists Liana Finck, Emily Flake and Zach Kanin, director Leah Wolchuk, and with New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin as the moderator.
Attached here is a New York Times piece about the documentary, as well as some photos, on and off the red carpet, and at the party afterwards. Lots of fun and great acknowledgment of cartoonists!
