"Tatsumi" exhibits the life work of one of Japan's most critically acclaimed artists, celebrating both his fascinating biography and five of his most celebrated stories. A war photographer captures a moving scene in the ruins of Hiroshima, only to be haunted by its sinister truth. A lonely factory worker parts with his beloved monkey, with tragic consequences. A despised prostitute severs ties with all men, beginning with her loutish father. Yoshihiro Tatsumi developed an alternative genre for adults called gekiga (meaning 'dramatic pictures'), "Tatsumi" created stories with more realism and darker in tone - demonstrating comic books were not just for children.
