Just watched the new award-winning National Film Board of Canada's documentary "Seth's Dominion." Simply outstanding. DON'T MISS SEEING "SETH'S DOMINION" JULY 5th at Windsor, Ontario's Super Summer Comic Con at the Caboto Club! We're very pleased to be showing this film TWICE during our show - with none other than Seth himself making an ULTRA-RARE comic con appearance to present the film, as well as sign books inside the con in-between showings. Extremely honoroed to have set this deal up with Biblioasis and couldn't be more proud to present Seth to Windsor - July 5th between 1-4 p.m. - at the Super Summer Comic Con 2 inside the Caboto Club (2175 Parent Avenue).
BIO and FILM DESCRIPTOR: Canadian cartoonist Seth, best known for comic books such as Palookaville, is one of the world’s great storytellers in the form. In his personal projects he transforms his poignant inner life into observant and witty graphic stories. He is also incredibly prolific, producing semi-autobiographical comics and award-winning commercial work, as well as what he calls his “little hobbies.” Director Luc Chamberland sheds light on his articulate subject, mixing insightful biography with vivid animation in an artful fusion of filmmaking techniques that perfectly captures Seth’s manifold creative universe. In this deft portrait of one of our most unique artists, Seth proves to be a wry and engaging narrator of his life story and artistic process.
