MR. FISH: CARTOONING FROM THE DEEP END
Dir. Pablo Bryant | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 70 min.
Discussion to follow with film subject Dwayne Booth, a.k.a. Mr. Fish
Mr. Fish, a successful and outrageous editorial cartoonist, finds that his profession is dying—and of course draws a witty and painfully truthful cartoon about it. Determined to maintain his unique, defiant voice while publishers pull their support, he struggles to stay true to himself and tirelessly continues to push his cartoons to the political edge. In a world where consumerism is king, will Mr. Fish be able to find a way to sell his art, or be forced to sell himself out?
