Pioneer, visionary, founding father, or subversive — call Robert Williams whatever you want, it's far too late to put the genie back in the bottle. Though the man needs no introduction in art world, alt-comics, illustration, or publishing circles, this documentary gets the story on the record. "Robert Williams: Mr. Bitchin'" traces the evolution of his career from the underground comix world to the global, nearly cultish superstardom he currently enjoys. A compendium of documentary footage, scholarship, personal insight, and interviews, the film examines this arc as well as its effect, if any, on the way Williams lives and works, and on the art world in general. This evening's screening kicks off MoCCA fest and is followed by a Q&A with the festival's honored guest Robert Williams and Co-Director/Producer Nancye Ferguson, with culture critic and curator Carlo McCormick moderating
