A couple of years ago, my amigo, the great Barcelona illustrator Miguel Gallardo, published a comics book called Maria y Yo (Maria and I) about his lovely autistic daughter Maria. The book is wonderfully effective: funny, touching and enlightening and received great praise in Spain, as well as the Catalan National Prize for Comics (in Spain and Catalunya they love giving prizes!).
The book was now made into a no less great documentary film by Felix Fernandez de Castro which opened last week.
