Ferenj: A Graphic MemoirAinslee A. Robson

The personal memories of the Ethiopian-American director and her inner struggle with her dual identity are perfectly captured with a special visual technique. The images of people and places are made up of countless colored spheres, which slowly dissolve as you get closer. As elusive and fleeting as memories themselves.
