Born in Tel Aviv in 1967, Etgar Keret is a favorite author of Israel’s younger generation, as well as an international success for his short stories (Suddenly a Knock on the Door), short movies (Camera d’Or-winner Jellyfish), children’s stories (Dad Runs Away with the Circus), and graphic novels (Pizzeria Kamikaze). According to Keret, “I really think that when you write or make films, you try to show how you experience reality. I don’t experience it as realism, which is objective, and something people agree on. The moment you accept subjectiveness, it transcends realism—falling in love is like flying in the air.” Presented by Seattle Arts & Lectures.
