Both Etgar Keret’s short stories and the anecdotes from his own life, share the fact that they are very relatable despite their incredible absurdities. True to his style, this inventive documentary explores Keret’s unique storytelling. Blending documentary filmmaking, animation, fact, fiction, lies and love for the arts, the film follows Keret from his inner circle in Tel Aviv to a New York book tour. His filmmaker wife Shira, childhood friends and famous colleagues such as Jonathan Safran Foer and Ira Glass all have a favorite story about Keret to share. This film reminds us why we tell stories and why they matter.
