ETGAR KERET: BASED ON A TRUE STORY

Feature Documentary

In his extremely short stories, the Israeli writer Etgar Keret plays an impressive game with fantasy and reality.
The story of his life, too, sounds like a modern fairy tale. In this hybrid documentary, the filmmakers investigate why telling lies is essential to Keret’s survival.
