About The Martha's Vineyard Film Festival: Very Semi-Serious...This behind-the-scenes look at The New Yorker introduces the cartooning legends and hopefuls who have inspired, baffled, and occasionally pissed off readers for decades. Blending documentary and animation, the film transforms the magazine’s iconic black-and-white cartoons into a vibrant comic world. Along the way, the film explores the evolution of the cartoonists’ senses of humor and how they reflect the changing social and political landscape of urban life. Very Semi-Serious is an offbeat meditation on humor, art, and the genius of the single-panel cartoon.

** Discussion to follow with film subject and New Yorker Cartoon Editor Bob Mankoff and New Yorker cartoonists and Vineyard residents Paul Karasik and Mick Stevens
