Summary TATSUMI celebrates the life and work of Japanese artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi—a manga pioneer who elevated the genre to a new level of creative expression and adult realism. A comics-crazed teenager, Tatsumi began to get published and was able to support his poor family in postwar occupied Japan. He finds even greater inspiration after meeting his idol, the famous Disney-esque animator Osamu Tezuka. But despite his success, Tatsumi became dissatisfied with making whimsical children’s comics. In the late 1950s, Tatsumi coined the term gekiga (dramatic pictures) and redefined the manga landscape with an alternative genre for adults. A tribute to an artist who made comics cinematic, filmmaker Eric Khoo’s (*Be With Me*) inventive animated drama brings Tatsumi’s memoir A Drifting Life and five of his classic stories to life. Nominated for Un Certain Regard at the **Cannes Film Festival**. *"Director Eric Khoo's stylishly impressive homage to the manga, converting his memoir, 'A Drifting Life,' into a cinematic work employing animation that is true to Tatsumi's original work." - Bruce Demara, **Toronto Star***
