Assistant Professor of Cinematic Arts Phil Garrett directed, produced, and edited The Other Men in Black: The Hasidic Movement, Past and Present, a film that focuses on the Hasidic movement in Judaism, which originated in 18th-century Ukraine and Poland.

The film’s live-action narrative plot line, historical recreations, and animation bring to life the story of the Hasidic movement and its impact on Jewish culture to life.

The film is being promoted by the Melton Center for Jewish Studies at Ohio State University and is a project of the Jewish History Media Project, with Arbor Avenue Films and the Advanced Computing Center for Arts and Design at OSU.
