Etgar Keret’s surrealist short stories are read and loved around the world. So, when two young Dutch filmmakers set out to make a film about Keret, they decided to emulate his surrealist style. Through animations of his stories, reenactments of his anecdotes, and interviews with family and friends (including author Jonathan Safran Foer and NPR host Ira Glass), this unique documentary brings to light one of the most renowned Israeli writers of our time.

Followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with director Stephane Kaas.

This event is co-presented by the Hebrew Program at Boston University and Boston Jewish Film Festival, and supported in part by an Arts Grant from the BU Arts Initiative - Office of the Provost. Tickets available on the Boston Jewish Film website.
