Video :: Stavans and Brodsky: Once 9:53

Mexican American scholar and writer Ilan Stavans to Argentine photographer Marcelo Brodsky speak on the fotonovela – a form of photographic comic book that was once beloved throughout the Spanish-speaking world, as a vehicle for literary experiment and political commentary – and their work on Once 9:53, their forthcoming fotonovela shared with Habitus. Once 9:53 is set in Buenos Aires’ historically Jewish Once neighborhood, in the hours leading up to the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center building.
