GRITtv: Joe Sacco: Images Can Transport You - Gaza

GRITtv: Joe Sacco: Images Can Transport You

In Footnotes in Gaza: A Graphic Novel, Joe Sacco looks back at 1956 in Gaza, when one bloody day in Rafah left 111 Palestinians dead. He tells the story in intricate pictures as well as the words of the people who survived that day, and like his other graphic works, he combines journalism with cartooning to create a hybrid art form that not only relates a story, but transports the reader back there.
Sacco joined Laura in studio recently to discuss his work, and why he chooses the medium he does to tell these riveting stories.
