David B’s Epileptic is one of my all-time favorite graphic novels. It’s an autobiographical story about Pierre-François Beauchard’s youth, focusing on his relationship with his epileptic brother Jean-Christophe. (I reviewed it nine years ago for Bookslut, if you’re curious about the book — but you should just buy it now.)
The comic has been adapted into a gorgeous animated movie with French title L’Ascension du Haut Mal by Christophe Gérard. (When it finds domestic distribution, it will almost certainly pick up the comic’s American title.)
A second, shorter teaser can be found at the film’s official website. They haven’t announced a release date yet, as far as I know, but I’ll be seeing it as soon as possible.
