Jury Selections

MATSUMOTO

LF Bollée / Philippe Nicloux / Translation: HARA Masato

Manga published in book form, in magazine [France/Japan]

A bande dessinée manga inspired by the 1994 incident that occurred in Matsumoto City, this work takes the perspectives of both the reli- gious cult that developed the deadly nerve agent gas and caused the incident, as well as that of Matsumoto City citizens. At the same time, it tells of the fear of indiscriminate vio- lence that exists wherever we turn in our everyday lives. This is a work of social advo- cacy.
