Masculinity and Marshmallows: The Role of Krembo in Israeli Cinema

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Krembo, a staple marshmallow sweet of Israeli childhood, has made several appearances in recent Israeli cinema. This session will analyze Krembo's cameo role in the movies "Beaufort," "Close to Home" and "Operation Grandma," examining how in different contexts this tasty symbol is able to reinforce, challenge and subvert Israeli norms of masculinity.
