In January, graphic journalist Joe Sacco gave this hour-long interview at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. From his journeys to war-torn nations in the Middle East, to an examination of his creative process, the discussion brings together art, history, and concern for human rights.

On a personal note: I wasn’t at this event, but a friend attended and told me University of Michigan posted the video. The Michigan Theater is a wonderful venue, and this video brings back fond memories of seeing indie art films and live bands there: Mudhoney; Henry Rollins (more than once); Noam Chomsky’s Manufacturing Consent; Six String Samurai; the director’s cuts of Blade Runner and Apocalypse Now; and the Federico Fellini film festival, to name just a few.
