Anna-Lina Mattar and Gala Rocabert Navarro in conversation with Catalina Mejía

En el ombligo

 Sala Teatro Parque Explora

The signing of the FARC Peace Accords in 2016 represented a watershed in the recent history of Colombia: a moment of triumph for many, and one of controversy for many others. Behind the headlines, what has happened to the people who were caught up in the war? The illustrator Anna-Lina Mattar (Germany-Spain) and the anthropologist and sociologist Gala Rocabert Navarro won the Fnac-Salamandra Graphic International Graphic Novel Prize for En el ombligo. Diarios de guerra y paz en Colombia (2021), a work that collates the experiences of former guerrilla fighters after the signing of the peace agreement in 2016. The illustrator Anna-Lina Mattar has created images to tell the story of Gala, who reports from the countryside about life after the agreement. They will talk to Catalina Mejía about the book.
