BBB consiglia: The Fact Finder

with Alex Bodea

chair Alice Milani, Emanuele Rosso

Mr. Hesus, a middle-aged migrant who has a hard time fitting in his host country, seems to be the only person immune to "Intrux", a weird phenomenon causing objects to look out of focus and eventually disappear. 
He decides, then, to transcribe the world into images before it becomes definitively unintelligible. A dystopian graphic novel touching upon some of the most complex issues of our age:  belonging, isolation and the craving for community, and our accumulated deficit of attention to details.
