Manga Do. Igort and the way of manga is the journey of Igort, one of the most important Italian graphic novel author, in the founding places of Japanese culture. The film takes the viewer along the path of the manga, where, as in the Eastern disciplines, we want to understand a path taken to transform a technique, that of the drawn story, into a practice of improvement.

Domenico Distilo (Rome, 25 December 1978) is an Italian director. He graduated in directing at the Experimental Center of Cinematography. His graduation film, Unexpected, a documentary on the request for political asylum in Italy, was presented in 2006 at the Festival dei Popoli and at the Berlinale in the Forum section.
In 2008 he won the national Solinas award for the feature film script, When the elephants fight, written together with Filippo Gravino and Guido Iuculano.
In 2011 he directed two documentaries for the RAI: ​​Urban extremes - Jerusalem, on territorial conflict in the Holy city and Roma Imaginary - Artists Against, on Roma art in Hungary.
He prefers themes related to social issues with an interest in contemporary art forms. In the film Margini di sottosuolo (2012), he explores the boundaries between documentary and fiction: a story about archeology and the feelings that bind men to their past.
