Besides the exhibition dedicated to the making of the graphic novel “L’année du lièvre”, the French Institute will host a discussion with author Tian about his research on his family history and on the history of Democratic Kampuchea. How did he recreate daily life in his graphic novel? Which images and which stories did he use? What have been his graphic options, for instance, when it comes to representing the Khmer Rouge regime?
The discussion will be followed by a book-signing session at Carnets d’Asie bookshop.
Tuesday 15 December at 6.30pm. Discussion in French, translation into Khmer and English.
Book-signing session at Carnets d’Asie bookshop after the discussion.
Free entrance, subject to avalability.
Exhibition: Tian: L’année du lièvre. The Making of a graphic novel, from10 December 2015 to 16 January 2016.
