Bellow, in film

Rutgers University’s Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life will screen the first documentary about the life of 20th-century novelist and Nobel- and Pulitzer Prize-winner Saul Bellow on Tuesday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. at Rutgers Cinema, 105 Joyce Kilmer Ave., Piscataway (Livingston campus).

The 85-minute film, “The Adventures of Saul Bellow,” tells Bellow’s story through original interviews, previously restricted footage, and visits to the places that shaped him, and will feature a post-screening discussion with filmmaker Asaf Galay and Louis Masur, Rutgers distinguished professor of American studies and history.

The free Bildner Center 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.
