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.
