We’ll take a different look at Mafalda, diving deep into her story to reveal how a comic strip from the 60’s could get so relevant culturally and how and why impacted everyone’s lives around the world.
With access to never seen before materials and exclusive interviews this docuseries will take a new fresh look into this classic created by Quino.

Note from the artistic direction
Iconic figure of the history of comics, whose characteristic features are part of the collective imagination, Mafalda’s real story is actually little-known. Through exclusive archives, the series recounts the story of the character, from its origins in publicity, to nowadays, thanks to testimonies of illustrators following Quino’s footsteps. Under its lightness, the series reports on the creative process, with the history of contemporary Argentina as a subtext.
