ÉMILE BRAVO & EMMANUEL GUIBERT


A new movement, La Nouvelle Bande Dessinée, has swept through French comics - the equivalent of La Nouvelle Vague in cinema - expanding their styles and subjects exponentially.

Émile Bravo draws My Mommy about a young son’s yearning for his vanished mother and brings historical relevance and pathos to Belgian classic Spirou.

Biographer Emmanuel Guibert chronicles one American G.I.‘s experiences in Alan’s War. In The Photographer he collaborates with photographer Didier Lefèvre to record his mission in Afghanistan with Doctors without Borders.

Where: Nash Room, ICA, The Mall, London
When: Saturday, June 20, 2009 - 6.30pm to 8pm
