The Hebrew Superhero (Gibor Ha’al Ha’ivri)

The Hebrew Superhero

“...a supremely entertaining new documentary about the strange history and dynamic reality of Israeli comics.” — Tablet Magazine

Deemed childish, trivial, and perhaps most cuttingly, un-Israeli, comics have long been shunned by fellow Israelis as something on the cultural fringe. Shaul Betser and Asaf Galay (The Muses of Isaac Bashevis Singer, JIFF 2015) trace the origins and evolution of the medium from quirky upstart to an indelible reflection on the various forms of Israeli heroes. Featuring gorgeous animation and interviews with Daniella London Dekel, Etgar Keret and Dudu Geva.
