Film Screening: 'The Hebrew Superhero'
April 4, 2017
Integrative Learning Center
UMass Amherst Campus
In this energetic cinematic treat, filmmakers Shaul Betser and Asaf Galay trace the little-known history of Israeli comics—and show how local artists redefined the American superhero for Israeli and Jewish contexts.
The film features insightful (and hysterical) interviews with Israeli artists and brilliant use of animation. One of the directors of the film, Asaf Galay, will also be attending.
The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
