JULES FEIFFER: A CONVERSATION

World Premiere & Live Panel Discussion

Jules Feiffer is an American legend, whom the Library of Congress has recognized for his “remarkable legacy” as a cartoonist, playwright, screenwriter, adult and children’s book author, illustrator, and art instructor. Feiffer’s Pulitzer-winning comic strip ran for forty-two years in the Village Voice, revolutionizing the notion of what a mainstream cartoonist might dare to address in print.

Join us for an intimate filmed portrait of the legendary cartoonist, screenwriter and author JULES FEIFFER in conversation with Michael Tisserand, author of Krazy: George Herriman, A Life in Black and White. In the film, the 91 year old Feiffer looks back over his extraordinary life and long, varied career, offering his opinions and views on arts, culture, politics and improvisation — central to his work.

The screening is followed by a live panel discussion of leading cartoonists. Moderated by Michael Tisserand, panelists include award winning cartoonist for The New Yorker Liza Donnelly, Hulu’s Woke co-creator and cartoonist Keith Knight, and POLITICO cartoonist Matt Wuerker.
