Description

Art Spiegelman is the man behind Maus, the Pulitzer Prize winning graphic novel about the Holocaust as filtered through a contentious father-son relationship.  This documentary portrait of the complicated cartoon artist shows him at work and at home, chain-smoking and kvetching, and in relationship with his daughter and his French wife, Francoise Mouly, art editor of The New Yorker.
