Far Out Isn't Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story


Far Out Isn't Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story


One man’s wild, lifelong adventure of testing society's boundaries through his subversive art, Far Out Isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story combines traditional documentary storytelling with original animation culled from seven decades worth of art from the renegade children’s book author and illustrator.

Using a palette of 20th century events to paint an artist’s epic yet controversial life story, 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 the revolutionary voices during one of the most tantalizing and dramatic periods in American history.

Presented with the Maine College of Art Illustration Department
