PA – Very Semi-Serious Screening

Press Release:

VERY SEMI-SERIOUS provides a humorous and illuminating window into the quirky and endearing world of The New Yorker’s iconic single-panel cartoons. While the documentary’s chief subject is the magazine’s cartoon gatekeeper, Editor Robert Mankoff, a charming and affable character whose engaging story could easily take up an entire film, first-time filmmaker Leah Wolchok takes care to highlight some of The New Yorker’s other freelance cartoonists – an awesomely eccentric mix of crusty vets and newbies, young and old, male and female. Featuring interviews with notables like Roz Chast, Mort Gerberg, Emily Flake, and George Booth, and newcomers the likes of Ed Steed and Liana Finch, Wolchok hones in on what inspires each to run Mankoff’s gauntlet of rejection week after week in hopes of making the cut.
