A loving but wickedly humorous tribute to cinema in graphic n-fiction, Sinemania! casts its spotlight on film directors. It's often unkwn to fans, but the lives of those behind the camera are every bit as compelling, strange and eccentric as those of the most headline-making film actors. In Sinemania! 23 North American and European directors are given parody biographies that highlight their twisted genius, rampant egos and flat-out weird behaviours. It is unsparing, merciless and affectionate in portraying them through the magic of Cossette's uncanny images.
