Talk, reading, Q&A

Zin, who lives in Lebanon, can neither read nor write. Despite being a child, he has to work in a print shop, where the master inspires Zin’s enthusiasm for printing and thus also teaches him to read and write. One day Zin receives an order to print pamphlets, which has unexpected consequences. The picture book is printed in the elaborate mezzotint process and tells of the power of words and growing up in just a few words and pictures that are as atmospheric as they are artistic.
