About:

  • The film taps into the explosion in the public’s appetite for superhero stories on television and in movies as a gateway to refocus common comic themes of doing good for the society and open a deeper and more inclusive social dialogue about identity, respect, and representation. By channeling questions about how we view ourselves and others through a creative medium, the viewer is able to confront prejudice and stereotype in a low-risk way. These discussions can have a lasting impact.
