Kurtzman

2019 • Canada

Director Bart Simpson exlores the life and artwork of MAD Magazine creator Harvey Kurtzman, as told by his family, colleagues and those he influenced significantly with his revolutionary parody style. The history of Harvey’s rise to comic prominence has never been told on screen before, and the astonishing array of people Harvey mentored and met along teh way, including Terry Gilliam, Gloria Steinem, Mel Brooks, Robert Crumb and all have claims to have been influenced and and shaped by Harvey’s willingness to confront the establishment. The film will interplay between interview, animation and archive and will show the power of one man’s demand to be heard on those generations of artists and activists that followed him.
