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

From life to the graphic novel

Jericó 2022, 

Three participants share with us the experience of transforming real-life stories into narratives told through images. Our guests are Tyto Alba, an artist who has illustrated one of the masterpieces of Colombian literature: Oblivion: A Memoir, (published as El olvido que seremos, 2021); this classic fictionalized biography by Héctor Abad Faciolince looks in a heartbreaking way at the Colombian armed conflict through the personal experience of the author, who lost his father, the doctor Héctor Abad Gómez, at the hands of the paramilitaries. Anna-Lina Mattar and Gala Rocabert Navarro are the authors of En el ombligo. Diarios de guerra y paz en Colombia (2021), a graphic novel that collates the experiences of former guerrillas after the signing of the Peace Accords in 2016. Illustrator Anna-Lina Mattar uses images to narrate the work of Gala Rocabert Navarro, an anthropologist and sociologist who reports from the field on life after the agreement. In conversation with Catalina Mejía.
