Prophet of Bad Taste

At first glance, our next movie is just another film “based on a true story”. Prophet of Bad Taste is the header of an article on the late cartoonist John Callahan in The Independent. Among most stories on John Callahan and the film “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on foot” this is the most personal one so far.

On YouTube you can watch a short documentary containing some of Callahan’s most famous cartoons and an interview with him: here is the link.

It’s movie night next Thursday, March 21st. Be at Alte Gerberei, doors and bar open as of 7.15 pm, film starts at 8 pm.

Who was John Callahan?

Our next film “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot” is based on the biography of the same name of US cartoonist John Callahan (1951 – 2010).

Aged 21, he became a quadriplegic in a car accident. Later he discovered his talent for drawing cartoons, which were known for black humour and often touching taboos like disability and disease. Find out more about John’s biography here

This is the cartoon which provided the name for the biography and the film:
