THE WINDOW

Winning best graphic novel in Taiwan in 2009, this story has no dialogue and exhibits the rhythm of a poem. It took Sean Chuang, a commercial film director and comic artist from Taiwan, ten years to finish this work, which he pays homage to Bande Dessines and European scenery. Once upon a time, somewhere in southern Europe in an ordinary small town, there was a girl in a wheelchair who couldn't leave her room. The window is her only connection to the outside world. One day, by accident, she meets a grocery store boy, and he takes her on a journey, opening her eyes to the world. But then, the war comes…
