The Brainwashing of My Dad

brainwashAn update from Bill Plympton:

I recently provided animation for the new award-winning political documentary, THE BRAINWASHING OF MY DAD, now available on iTunes and most VOD platforms. It’s a great film, and very timely, so please check it out!

I also did an original illustration for the film’s theatrical poster. These 27 x 40-inch “one-sheets” were displayed at Cinema Village in NYC, Laemmle Music Hall in LA, and some other independent venues around the country. Now that the main theatrical run is over, we’re making the extra posters available to our Kickstarter backers. We don’t have many, so it’s first-come, first-served. The posters will come signed by me and the film’s director, Jen Senko. We will ship them in large sturdy poster tubes to ensure they arrive safely. If you’d like to order more than one, please contact the film’s producer, Adam ( as we can ship multiple posters in a single tube to save money on shipping. If you’re interested, we’ve set up a PayPal link to make ordering simple.

Bezango, WA

It seemed perfectly natural for filmmakers Ron Austin and Louise Amandes to name their documentary about Pacific Northwest cartoonists for that special destination.

The film was officially premiered in September 2015 and the DVDs produced for its Kickstarter Campaign have been distributed.
