Eventbrite - Drawn Together + Shorts

Filmmakers Harleen Singh and Rucha Chitnis in person! With special guest, Ann Marie Sayers.

With a lively backdrop of superheroes and comic books, Harleen Singh’s Drawn Together: Comics, Diversity, and Stereotypes (USA, 2017) gathers together three comic book artists (SF-based Eileen Alden, NC-based Keith Knight, and NY-based Vishvajit Singh, aka “Sikh Captain America”) to examine issues of diversity, representation, and racism.

A stereotype-busting film, it provides an opportunity to explore the subjects of race, gender, and religion through the universally popular medium of comic books and cartoons, boldly encouraging viewers to look beyond the obvious, and unlearn and confront media prejudices.
