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

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

Directed by Brad Bernstein

Legendary illustrator Tomi Ungerer became famous in the 1960's for his innovative children's books, but controversy over his erotic drawings brought his career to a halt. This acclaimed documentary examines the complexities 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.

Tomi is an amazing, courageous artist. I so enjoyed to learn about his life, his pilgrimage to where he is now. Isn’t that how it is for all of us, with no permanent answers, ongoing struggling to understand what is this life I am living? What an incredible human being and a great movie.

It's everything a documentary should be, but much richer because of the wacky wonderful Mr. Ungerer.
