The riveting documentary Far Out Isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story will broadcast tonight on RTE One at 10.45pm.

The film delves into Tomi’s youth in France and offers a feature-length retrospective of the pioneering mid-century graphic artists’ controversial life and art (from advertisements to children’s literature to political posters and erotic art) and his influence on such artists as the creator of Where the Wild Things Are Maurice Sendak and the Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Jules Feiffer.

Tomi’s children’s books are now more popular than ever.  His book Moon Man has been made into a feature length animation which will be on DVD and VoD release in Ireland and UK this week.

Far Out Isn’t Far Enough was nominated for a Best Documentary Award at the Producers Guild of America Awards last year and has wowed audiences and critics alike.  It has screened at some of the most prestigious festivals in the world including the Toronto International Film Festival and has picked up numerous awards including the Best Documentary award at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival last year.

Moon Man will be available on DVD in Ireland tomorrow Friday 18th April and will be available on DVD in the UK and across a range of digital platforms and formats in Ireland and the UK from Monday April 21st.  Watch the Moon Man trailer on the Wildcard Distribution YouTube Channel.

Far Out Isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story will broadcast on RTE One on Thursday 17th April at 10.45pm.
