"The arrival of global brands such as the Mail and the Guardian in Australia has coincided with the shrinking of local newspaper companies News Corp Australia and Fairfax Media, which have shed thousands of jobs between them in the past few years as circulation of the print editions drops."
I was on a panel in Washington DC with a young Yemeni activist, and she asked why it was that white men always had to make sense of these stories for the world in order for anyone to pay attention to them. I agree with that critique, and I don’t feel completely comfortable with my role in this film.
Hey, how come we never talk about Charles Addams?
I barely ever see compilations of his work for sale.
I barely ever see his cartoons being blogged.
His tumblr tag is sparse as hell.
So many people have no idea that the Addams Family began as recurring characters in what was basically "The Far Side" of the 1940’s and 50’s.
He invented the Addams Family and he barely gets any credit.
And seventy years later his jokes feel as fresh and sharp as ever.
