FREE DOWNLOAD Å The Boat Hall debut And with graceful symmetry the final title story returns to Vietnam to a fishing trawler crowded with refugees where a young woman's bond with a mother and her small son forces both women to a shattering decision Brilliant daring and demonstrating a jaw dropping versatility of voice and point of view The Boat is an extraordinary work of fiction that takes us to the heart of what it means to be human and announces a writer of astonishing gif. Based on a narrative by Nam Le The Boat tells the story of a young girl s arduous journey from Vietnam as an asylum seeker It is the first interactive webcomic that I ve ever read and I am in awe at the production uality and the thought that went into the design and formatting I especially enjoyed the soundtrack and how it enhanced the scenes at handThe feelings of claustrophobia and the inhumane conditions on the boat really came across through the hauntingly beautiful music and fitting sound effects On top of that the black and white art style added to the bleak nature of their uest This webcomic follows the young girl Mai and the two people she s closest to on the boat the even younger boy Truong and his mother ueyen Personally I didn t uite manage to connect to any of the characters because the webcomic was just too short for that it took me around 15 minutes to finish it and I didn t always get why characters acted in certain ways Therefore despite the heavy subject matter the webcomic didn t have the emotional impact that I should have had Being a very ignorant German who knows next to nothing about the Vietnam War because we don t learn about it in schools here I had hoped that the comic would include historical facts and the political context in which the story was set Unfortunately we got absolutely nothing on that front and so I had to do all the research on my own which is fine don t get me wrong Here s what I learned The Vietnam War ended on April 30 1975 with the fall of Saigon to the North Vietnamese Army and the subseuent evacuation of than 130000 Vietnamese closely associated with the United States or the former government of South Vietnam Most of the evacuees were resettled in the United States in Operation New Life and Operation New Arrivals Within the same year the countries of Cambodia and Laos also fell to communist forces thus engendering a steady flow of refugees fleeing all three countriesVietnamese boat people were refugees who fled Vietnam by boat and ship following the end of the Vietnam War in 1975 This migration was at its highest in 1978 and 1979 but continued through the early 1990s The number of boat people leaving Vietnam and arriving safely in another country totalled almost 800000 between 1975 and 1995 The combination of economic sanctions the legacy of destruction left by the Vietnam War Vietnamese government policies and further conflicts with neighboring countries caused an international humanitarian crisis with the Southeast Asian countries increasingly unwilling to accept boat people on their shores After negotiations and an international conference in 1979 Vietnam agreed to limit the flow of people leaving the country The Southeast Asian countries agreed to admit the boat people temporarily and the rest of the world especially the developed countries agreed to assume most of the costs of caring for the boat people and to resettle them in their countriesI m not a history buff by any means but I found it very interesting to learn about this chapter of Vietnamese history and I am very glad that these happenings are worked through in works of fiction even in such progressive forms such as an interactive webcomic Even though to be uite honest the interactive part of this webcomic was pretty slim since you could only chose to learn about certain character s histories by clicking on a button but yeah baby steps view spoilerAfter an unexpected storm the boat was left ruined It almost stands as a metaphor for the emotional and psychological turmoil the journey is taking on the Asylum seekers Causalities begin to befall the boat and various sicknesses spread Mai does everything in her power to save little Truong s life an undertaking that proves fruitless in the end The dead bodies are thrown over bord like waste The imagery and the music get pretty heavy and the idea that human life seemingly ceases to have value in these moments is enhanced hide spoiler

FREE DOWNLOAD Å The Boat A stunningly inventive deeply moving fiction debut stories that take us from the slums of Colombia to the streets of Tehran; from New York City to Iowa City; from a tiny fishing village in Australia to a foundering vessel in the South China Sea in a masterly display of literary virtuosity and feeling In the magnificent opening story Love and Honor and Pity and Pride and Compassion and Sacrifice a young writer is urged by his friends to mine his father. The production uality art direction sound design and every other thoughtful decision that went into crafting this interactive web comic is what pushes this story to 5 stars I think if I had read this story in a traditional format with just the text I would have rated it 3 stars because the short length and choppy writing don t provide much context for the historical setting or enough to make me emotionally connected to the characters However the craft truly enhanced the story to make it feel visceral and immersive and from my POV as an art director I m impressed enough with the work on a technical level to give it the full 5 stars I appreciate how the music and sound effects create a claustrophobic atmosphere and that there were so many little details like having the comic panels tilt around the screen when the boat is rocking around The emotional beats were executed well such as showing starvation through art that diminishes as you scroll down These nuances make it clear that there was a lot of time care and thought put into this I totally get why people might rate this 3 stars due to lack of historical context provided and not having much of an emotional connection but I think if you come from a design background you will appreciate the craft and if you are of Vietnamese heritage it ll be a sobering story to think about
