**Part of the Four-Part Lecture/Workshop Series “Shazam! Jewish Biblical Texts Transformed by the Power of Pictures”**

Featuring Ben Schachter, Artist in Residence, Jewish Studies Program, University of Pittsburgh

Zoom Registration Link


The first presentation focuses on narrative elements that are maintained in retelling. Focusing on the Exodus as it appears in comic books, illustrated educational texts, and film pre-production images, we will see how plot, character, and setting are maintained. Examples shared in this lecture include: The Ten Commandments (film, 1956), and Exodus: Gods and Kings (film, 2014). We will pay close attention to elements of the written text that remain in the final product.
