Jonathan Thunder: Good Mythology

Duluth’s Jonathan Thunder is the subject of a short film that aired nationally on PBS in November. Now, the feature is available via YouTube, and is embedded above.

Jonathan Thunder: Good Mythology, directed by Sergio Mata’u Rapu, was selected by American Masters for national broadcast as part of the digital series In the Making.

Rapu followed Thunder as he dove deep into the inspirations behind his surrealist paintings and animations. From the killing of an iconic American hero to critical perspectives of how indigenous people were portrayed in early children’s cartoons, Thunder’s art prompts viewers to take a critical look at shared mythologies.
