Joann Sfar Draws From Memory gets world premiere Jan. 25

Joann Sfar Draws From Memory, director Sam Ball’s documentary portrait of the French comics artist and filmmaker (Dungeon, The Rabbi’s Cat, Little Vampire) will receive its world-premiere screening at 8:30 p.m. Jan. 25 at the Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater in New York City.

The film follows Sfar to his favorite neighborhood spots and muses about his artistic process and the influence of his Algerian and Eastern European heritage. Tickets are still available for the screening, which also includes the U.S. premiere of The Silent Historian and a Q&A with Ball and executive producer Valerie Joseph.

I randomly came across The Rabbi’s Cat comic at the NYPL sometime last year and was unexpectedly taken by it. I chanced on a listing for this screening, went, and had the great pleasure being further enchanted Sfar – who is rarely not drawing – as well as by the film itself. I am looking forward to the opportunity to see it again (and again). The film is for anyone who appreciates Sfar’s work, the comics medium, storytelling, or life. I will tell anyone who will listen (or not).

I am a 32 year old woman who has been reading (most hero) comics since I was 5, and am still quite in love with them.
