Middle East Now postpones the dates of the 2020 festival
8 March 2020

A new project dedicated to comics and graphic novels, which aims to observe the Middle East from a different point of view: stories in color or black and white tell the complexity of this region, trying to explain it not only to young people. Alternative points of view with the aim to unhinge well-established prejudices and stereotypes. Alongside the now famous Satrapi and Zerocalcare, every year the ranks of cartoonist and graphic novels authors become more and more dense, who are responsible for giving voice and body to History with a capital “H” and to the smaller stories of those who, like us, are bathed in same sea.

A project conceived and curated by Anna Di Giusto, researcher and expert in comics; a project that during the festival will become an exhibition-installation in the foyer of the Cinema La Compagnia – signed by the creative studio Archivio Personale, with a series of sound stories taken from the books and read by Laura Croce (Murmuris) – and a series of talks and workshops with the authors in the festival schedule.
