Beautifiul and Brutal: Watch Howie Shia’s “BAM”

Toronto-based Canadian animator/illustrator Howie Shia’s riveting and visceral adaptation of the myth of Hercules tells the story of “a young boxer struggling to negotiate between his shy, bookish nature and a divinely violent temper.”

Produced in 2015 by the NFB, “BAM” asks “where does this rage come from? Is it psychological or environmental – or is it something altogether more primordial?”
