The Jameson Dublin International Film Festival is go with more than 150 features and short films, workshops and special events coming next month. The festival begins on 14 February and features a plethora of special guests including Danny DeVito, Robert Towne and Joss Whedon.
One highlight of the programme is a screening of Far Out Isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story, with director Brad Bernstein coming to Dublin to discuss the film.
Ungerer rose to prominence in the late 1950s as the creator of acclaimed children’s books such as Crictor, Emile and The Three Robbers. In the film Bernstein sets about rediscovering Ungerer after his work was effectively banned in the early 1970′s after his adult work came to the attention of the American Library Association.
‘I dare say, no one was as original. Tomi influenced everybody.’ – Maurice Sendak.
