In this special screening of the hybrid documentary, enter the fascinating, truth-bending world of acclaimed Israeli short story writer Etgar Keret, and discover what makes him tick. In a post-screening dialogue, the writer will share with audiences his flirtation with fantasy and hyper-reality.

​This session is made possible with the assistance of the Embassy of Israel.
