Synopsis

Tatsumi celebrates the life of Japanese comic artist, Yoshihiro Tatsumi. As he becomes successful, he redefines the manga landscape with an alternative genre for adults—and his work plunges into the darker aspects of life.

Our take

In America, animation is too often seen as a medium for children, when its freedom from realism can mean as much for adult storytelling as well. This unconventional Cannes documentary by Eric Khoo, about an artist who crossed that barrier, uses spare animation to blur a man’s life and work together.
