The Dust of the Ancestors
The Dust of the Ancestors
Living with memory – or living in the past?
The graphic novel 'The Dust of the Ancestors' (jet published in French and German) is based on the illustrated book 'Polvo' (limited edition, 2010), which has been expanded and now contains many more detailed illustrations as well as a revised version of the narrative. Apart from the Mexican festivities on the "Day of the Dead" and a visit to the Great Beyond that is cheerful and macabre at the same time, the new book also offers flashbacks to some of Mexico’s bygone eras, as for instance the 1930s of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera or the age of the Mexican Revolution. Eventually, an intoxication created by peyote leads readers back to the times of the Aztecs – and from there on directly into Purgatory.
