When we came across this interactive graphic novel the other day, we were both so spellbound. Based upon the story by Nam Le and adapted into a comic by Matt Huynh, "The Boat" is an incredible piece of art that uses a variety of mediums like art and visual display/culture to depict the story of Vietnamese Boat People. The words and the graphics draw you in, enveloping you in the tragic yet often unknown tale. We hope that when you watch it, you are as moved as we were.
