Video portrait
Duration 1:13:45

In this video portrait, Lazzarus tells the entire 80+ year story of Captain America. Performed and shot in 2006, his monologue predates the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the release of Captain America: The First Avenger. Lazzarus’ chronology of this children’s comic book character illuminates Cap as a dynamic reflection of American self-perception spanning the 20th Century.

Media and studio support provided by BCAT and BRIC, two Brooklyn based arts non-profits. 
Postproduction in AE 6.5 and FCP 4.0. 

Included in Robert G. Weiner's essay collection, Captain America and the Struggle of the Superhero published by McFarland & Company.
