Etgar Keret is an Israeli writer known for his short stories, graphic novels and scriptwriting for film and television. What Animal Are You? appears in his collection Suddenly, a Knock on the Door.
Filmmaker Gur Bentwich accompanies his longtime friend on a whirlwind book tour to the Big Apple. Between readings and interviews, Keret ruminates on his life as a writer and the recent death of his father; he hangs with pals Nathan Englander and Ira Glass. A personal, playful journey, this entertainingly intimate documentary is at once poignant, absurd and hilarious.
