The Boat: An interactive graphic novel by Matt Huynh

The Boat is an epic and tragic story of the 16-year-old Mai, whose parents make the decision to send her alone on a boat to Australia after the fall of Saigon created by Matt Huynh. The story is told in an interactive graphic novel format as part of Australian broadcaster SBS‘s multi-platform recognition of the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon and 40 years of Vietnamese resettlement in Australia.

The Boat unites hand-drawn artwork, animation, text, sound, and archive to explore this important moment in history through an innovative mode of storytelling that pushes the existing boundaries of the graphic novel form.
