An entertaining and revealing documentary portrait of Michael Leunig: Australian cartoonist, writer, painter, philosopher, poet, and playful provocateur.

Michael Leunig is best known for his whimsical quivering-line cartoons that have appeared in The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald over several decades. His delightful characters –The Duck, Mr Curly and Vasco Pyjama – have entertained the nation, but he's also been the target of considerable criticism. In this entertaining documentary, the man behind the pen talks candidly about his life and work.
