by BWW News Desk - Oct 19, 2013

FAR OUT ISN'T FAR ENOUGH: The Tomi Ungerer Story 98 minutes, documentary, color, closed captions, 2012 A film by Brad Bernstein Special Features: Tomi Ungerer & Jules Feiffer at The Society of Illustrators Maurice Sendak Critiques The King's Speech Tomi Ungerer in Ireland Deleted Scenes Director's Commentary 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.
