41st Annual Jewish Book & Arts Fair film screening: Etgar Keret: What Animal Are You?

Zeitgeist Films

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.
