Feels Good Man
What if the easygoing cartoon frog from your underground zine was co-opted into an alt-right hate symbol? Feels Good Man is the Sundance award-winning, stranger-than-fiction tale behind Pepe the Frog and his creator, artist Matt Furie. A wild journey into the dark depths of the internet, this highly absorbing and timely documentary details the bizarre chain of events that lead to Pepe entering the memesphere, never to return. Following Furie’s fight to reclaim Pepe from the likes of 4Chan, InfoWars and Donald Trump, Feels Good Man probes into the unique challenges creators face in maintaining control over their images in the online era.
Why You Should See This Film
Debut director Arthur Jones has created something pretty special with this film. It’s mind-blowing to witness how an innocuous, carefree cartoon frog can be twisted into a vehicle for hate, and you really feel for Matt Furie. A chilled-out cartoonist living with his young family in San Francisco, he is a well-meaning David to the dark, twisted Goliath of what his creation has come to represent. Featuring eye-popping animation and a slew of interesting interviewees, this is a real documentary treat.
