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.
Born in Ramat Gan, Israel in 1967, Etgar Keret’s books have been translated into more than 40 languages. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, Le Monde, The New Yorker, The Paris Review and elsewhere. His film Jellyfish (2007), co-directed with his wife Shira Geffen, won the Camera d’Or Award at Cannes. He was named Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France in 2010, and in 2016 received the Charles Bronfman Prize for Jewish humanitarians.
