Groter geest, groter beest

Documentary about cartoonist Dick Matena.

A wonderful personal portrait of this remarkable cartoonist who began his career at the Toonder Studios, where he took the Panda series under his wing.

Later, he became successful at the Pep with the series The Argonautjes. Matena ran into trouble when he started making more personal work such as the book “De Prediker”. In the recent years he enjoyed being known especially for De Avonden (Reve) and Kort Amerikaans (Wolkers)

The documentary contains, next to Dick’s beautiful material, interviews with Jan Wolkers, Marten Toonder and Loo Hartog van Banda.
