Political cartoonist Jeff Danziger will speak about his role in a French documentary film, Cartoonists, Foot Soldiers of Democracy, and about creating editorial cartoons during this time in American history. The film, an official selection at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, weaves together portraits of 12 cartoonists who defend democracy, often at personal peril. Danziger is the sole American cartoonist featured in the film.
