STORY & PICTURES BY is the first feature documentary to take audiences behind the scenes to meet the authors and artists who create children’s picture books. The film follows Christian Robinson, Yuyi Morales, and Mac Barnett–three bookmakers leading the new “golden age” of kids literature– as they create experimental work that reflects the mysteries of childhood, champion the marginalized, and provide children with windows and mirrors, even when their own lives are not fairy tales. Through rare archival and untapped insights, we also come to meet the first boundary pushers of the art form and understand why the classics still endure today.
The film is world premiering at the Hamptons Independent Film Festival in October followed by several upcoming screenings. Follow this page to learn more and find out when STORY & PICTURES BY is playing near you!
