Two Upcoming Events-- Comics and Film

TONIGHT, Thursday, June 27th at 7pm ET at powerHouse Arena:

Comics artists Leela Corman (author of Victory Parade) and Solomon Brager (author of Heavyweight) in conversation with Jewish Currents editor-in-chief Arielle Angel, on writing about the Holocaust from the third generation, the ethics of visual representations of historical violence, and the imperative to contextualize the Holocaust within broader, more inclusive histories. The writers will also discuss what it means to publish a book about the Holocaust—and engage with the mainstream Jewish literary and arts world—in a moment of mass death in Gaza.

Attendance is free for Jewish Currents members and $5 for non-members.

Monday, July 1st at 7pm at Angelika Film Center:

Zeteo and Jewish Currents are co-hosting the premiere of Zeteo’s first original documentary, Israel’s Reel Extremism journeys through Israeli society after months of mass violence in Gaza. The film will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A with Mehdi Hasan, founder and editor-in-chief of Zeteo; Amira Haas, award-winning Israeli author and journalist; Najla Said, Palestinian American actress, author, and activist; and Simone Zimmerman, Jewish American activist and co-founder of IfNotNow.

Tickets are $9 for Jewish Currents members and $30 for non-members.
