"The Adventures of Saul Bellow" To Be Screened At Rutgers Cinema(PISCATAWAY, NJ) -- On Tuesday, February 25, there will be a screening of The Adventures of Saul Bellow at Rutgers Cinema, 105 Joyce Kilmer Avenue, Piscataway (Livingston Campus).  This is the first-ever documentary film about the life of Saul Bellow, one of twentieth-century America’s most acclaimed novelists, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, three National Book Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize. The screening takes place at 7:00pm.

The new film, The Adventures of Saul Bellow (85 minutes, in English), from director Asaf Galay tells Bellow’s story through original interviews, previously restricted footage, and visits to the places that shaped him. Among Bellow’s best-known works are the award-winning novels The Adventures of Augie March, Herzog, and Seize the Day. The event will feature a post-screening discussion with filmmaker Asaf Galay and Louis Masur, distinguished professor of American studies and history at Rutgers University.

The film screening will be held Tuesday, February 25, 7:00 p.m., at Rutgers Cinema, 105 Joyce Kilmer Avenue, Piscataway (Livingston Campus). The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required for entry. Seating is first-come, first-served. Free parking is available on campus with vehicle registration. For more information and tickets, visit BildnerCenter.Rutgers.edu.

Presented by the Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life, the event is the Abram Matlofsky Memorial Program supported by the Karma Foundation. It is cosponsored by the Department of American Studies and the Americanist Seminar of the English Department.  The Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life connects the university with the community through public lectures, symposia, Jewish communal initiatives, cultural events, and teacher training.

Director Asaf Galay’s documentary films about modern Jewish culture include The Muses of Isaac Bashevis Singer, a biography of the Yiddish writer, and The Hebrew Super Hero, about the development of comic books in Israel. Louis Masur is an American cultural historian who focuses on discrete moments and seeks to unpack their meaning, whether the events of a year or a single photograph or a seminal record album.
