The Cameri Theatre of Tel-Aviv
Based on stories by Etgar Keret
Directed by Zvi Sahar, PuppetCinema

 

Amid the sun-glinted spires of a forsaken Gotham, a storyteller gets the ultimate assignment. In this gritty puppet cinema epic adapted from Tel Aviv-based writer Etgar Keret’s darkly funny short story collection Suddenly, A Knock on the Door, Israeli director Zvi Sahar and PuppetCinema (Salt of the Earth, 2014 Next Wave) employ cameras, puppets, and object theater to immerse audiences in a dystopian world where competing narratives lend calm to the chaos. Mountains of rusted metals and ruins form the disenchanted landscape in which a writer must create, no matter the cost, ultimately finding freedom in the depths of his fiction.

 

Adapted by Zvi Sahar and Oded Littman
Dramaturgy by Oded Littman
Set and costume design by Aya Zaiger
Music by Gai Sherf
