Very Semi-Serious

Part of our Art, Design, and Architecture series

Very Semi-Serious is an offbeat documentary about humor, art and the genius of the single panel.  The film goes behind-the-scenes of The New Yorker and introduces the cartooning legends and hopefuls who create the iconic cartoons that have inspired, baffled—and occasionally pissed off—all of us for decades.

The film won a 2016 Emmy Award for Outstanding Arts & Culture Programming and was nominated for Outstanding Documentary Editing

"It's a very, very funny film but also sweetly sad and poignant, echoing the mix of humor and pathos that marks a New Yorker cartoon exactly what it is." -Los Angeles Times

"Catnip for writers and humorists of all stripes, Wolchok’s film provides delightful breakdowns of various cartoons, examining the comedic rhythm of their design and detail."
