As in many of the weirdest fairy tales, it all starts with a frog. This story, however, is all too real. In November 2016, a barbaric election cycle had exposed a seismic cultural rift, and the US suddenly felt like a much different place. Cartoonist Matt Furie’s comic creation Pepe the Frog, conceived more than a decade earlier as a laid-back humanoid amphibian, had unwittingly become a grotesque political pawn. Pepe was first innocently co-opted as a meme in the MySpace era, only later to be perverted as a totem of the alt-right: tweeted by Donald Trump, condemned by Hillary Clinton, and declared a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League. Feels Good Man is about an unexpected cultural rift and an artist battling to regain control of his vandalized creation. As Pepe continues to morph around the world – last year, he transformed again into a symbol of hope among protesters in Hong Kong – Feels Good Man offers a vivid, moving portrait of one man, one frog, and the very strange reality we’ve all found ourselves living in.
