What if the easygoing, much-loved cartoon frog from your underground zine was co-opted into an alt-right hate symbol?


When San Fran artist Matt Furie first conceived the character of Pepe the Frog for his online comic 'Boy’s Club', he could never have fathomed what would happen to his ‘chill frog dude’. Turned into a meme by controversial internet messaging boards, Pepe unexpected became the face of the racist alt-right movement, with Furie left helpless to stop it.

Tying insightful interviews and stranger-than-fiction footage together with dreamlike animation, filmmaker Arthur Jones takes this bizarre story through the internet rabbit hole - concisely exploring online life in the 21st century, meme culture, radicalization, and the unique journey of a sweet and talented artist and his fight to keep Pepe kind.

“You’ve just got to see it. It is chilling, hopeful, terrible, and wonderful—and made with care, gorgeous animation, and perfect pacing.” – LA Magazine
