Celebrated comic series “Epileptic” to get animated film treatment

PanARMENIAN.Net - David B's Epileptic will be adapted into an animated film, Digital Spy reported.

The French project will be released under the graphic novel's original title L'Ascension du Haut Mal (The Rise of the High Evil).

The tonic-clonic seizures of one child are going to shatter the life of an entire family, who, throughout the '70s clings onto all the false hopes offered by magnetism and macrobiotic communities," reads the film's description.

"Their epic battle with epilepsy nourishes an extraordinary imaginary world that each one throws onto reality as a lifebelt."

The celebrated 1996-2003 comic series by David B (real name Pierre-François Beauchard) concerns the cartoonist's family life and his brother's severe epilepsy.

Christophe Gérard directed the adaptation. The Epileptic film is yet to announce its release details.
