Speaking about the upcoming cinema releases Tomi Ungerer said: “Far Out Isn’t Far Enough was realised by Brad Bernstein who was able with tact, taste and talent to compose my portrait on the screen with integrity.”

Far Out Isn’t Far Enough delves into Tomi Ungerer’s youth and explores his meteroric rise and fall in America. It takes a candid look at his work ranging from his advertisements for the original Mad Men in 1950’s and 1960’s NYC and his immensely successful children’s books to his controversial political posters and erotic art, some of which were so provocative and disturbing that all his children’s books were pulled from libraries and taken off the market. But times change and he is now recognised as one of the most respected and influential illustrators and graphic designers of the 20th century.

Far Out Isn’t Far Enough opened in cinemas around Ireland on Friday 13th December.
