AboutDirected by David Van Taylor, USA 2007, 90 min
An unexpected portrait of the man behind Peanuts, the most popular comic strip in history. The story of Charles Schulz (19222000) is a quintessentially Midwestern tale of the unassuming, self-doubting man who, in expressing his unique view of the world, redefined the comic art form. His genius lay in depicting the daily collisions of insiders and outsiders, of mundane cruelties and transcendent hopes.
David Van Taylor is Vice-President of Lumiere Productions, he has also directed Dream Deceivers (1992); A Perfect Candidate (1996); series With God on Our Side (1996) and Ghosts of Attica (2001), producer.
