‘Manga Do. Igort and the way of manga‘ is the journey of Igort, one of the most important Italian graphic novel authors, to the founding places of Japanese culture. The film takes the viewer on the manga’s way, where by ‘way’, as in the oriental disciplines, it shows a path taken to transform the technique of graphic novel storytelling into a practice of improvement. Igort, working on his ‚Japanese Notebooks/ vol.2‘, travels from Tokyo to Nagoya, the Kii peninsula to Izumo, where he discovers a thousand-year-old paper making technique, to end his journey at the Peace Museum in Hiroshima.
