Exploring the history and legacy of Superman, ‘SECRET IDENTITY: The Origin of SUPERMAN’ examines the early days of writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster.
Through animated storytelling and the eyes of two of his biggest fans: Luke "The Geek of Steel" and Tasmin "The Aspiring Kryptonian" bloggers from the UK, as they adventure through Cleveland, Ohio discovering the roots of his creators.
Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster brought life to the idea that goodness and hope exist even in the face of personal hardship. Jerry and Joe’s creation of an alien from a far off place mirrored their family’s experience to the classic Jewish immigrant’s journey. Tragically, Jerry’s father died during a robbery, igniting a passion for justice to a character who embodies the very essence of the word.
A collection of interviews, narrative animations, and cinematic storytelling will guide us through a world before Superman, to a time where no person could imagine one without him.
