A film has been made about Seth, the single named Autuer of Clyde Fans, It’s A Good Life If You Don’t Weaken, Palookaville, and countless illustrations. It’s called Seth’s Dominion, it’s directed by Luc Chamberland and it is described as “a hybrid documentary/animation film exploring the life of master cartoonist Seth.”
Given that Seth is a perfectionist, you’d expect no less of a film about him, so to no one’s surprise the film has won the Grand Prize for Best Animated Feature at this year’s Ottawa International Animation Festival.
The film will be shown this week in Montreal as an official selection of the Festival du Nouveau Cinema.
Saturday, October 11th, 4:30 pm: Auditorium Alumni H-110, Hall Building Concordia University, 1455 boul. de Maisonneuve Ouest Tickets available here. Seth will be present and signing at this screening only!
Thursday, October 16th, 3:00 pm: Pavillion Judith-Jasmin Annexe UQAM, 405 rue Sainte-Catherine Est Tickets available here.
Add this to Root Hog or Die, the John Porcellino movie, Rude Dude, the Steve Rude movie—ON SALES TODAY, I might add— and some others in the works and you have a nice library of in depth films about comics makers beginning.
