Arthur Jones is last year’s winner of best documentary at Sundance for his movie Feels Good Man, which is a 2020 American documentary film about the Internet meme Pepe the Frog. The film stars artist Matt Furie, the creator of Pepe the Frog, and follows Furie as he struggles to reclaim control of Pepe from members of the alt-right who have co-opted the image for their own purposes. The film premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and won a U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Emerging Filmmaker. It was also nominated in the U.S. Documentary Competition at Sundance.
