Animated clip of Etgar Keret’s ‘Pipes’

Best-selling Israeli author Etgar Keret is lauded for his zany ingenuity, as you’ll experience in this brief scene (1:46) from the full-length movie Etgar Keret: Based on a True Story. Like most of Keret’s work, this vignette blends fantasy and reality, causing us to think about the blurry lines that separates truth from fiction. The New York Times has hailed Keret as a “genius” and renowned author Salman Rushdie has described him as “completely unlike any writer I know” and “the voice of the next generation.” Keret has received several prizes and awards for his work in both literature and film.
