*DIGITAL* Cartoonists: Still Foot Soldiers of Democracy

September 16
7:00 pm

Vermont Humanities Digital Channels

Political cartoonist Jeff Danziger will speak about his role in a French documentary film, Cartoonists, Foot Soldiers of Democracy, and about creating editorial cartoons during this time in American history. The film, an official selection at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, weaves together portraits of 12 cartoonists who defend democracy, often at personal peril. Danziger is the sole American cartoonist featured in the film.

View the Film

Watch the complete Cartoonists, Foot Soldiers of Democracy film on Vimeo in advance of this conversation with Danziger.
