    Wayne White will be in attendance for a post-film Q&A on Tuesday evening, Oct 30 following the 7:00 pm screening.

    Raised in the mountains of Tennessee, Wayne White started his career as a cartoonist in New York City. He quickly found success as one of the creators of the TV show, Pee-wee's Playhouse, which led to more work designing some of the most arresting and iconic images in pop culture. The film chronicles the vaulted highs and the crushing lows of a commercial artist struggling to find peace and balance between his work and his art.

    “A vivid, fluorescent-colored portrait of a sane man possessed with insane creativity.” – Chris Packham, Village Voice
