For some reason the video stopped working when I posted this earlier this week. So, let’s try this again.
The Sundance Film Festival ended last week and one of the lovely surprises was a short film based on a short story of the same name by Etgar Keret—What Do We Have in Our Pockets? If you’ve read any of Keret’s story collections—The Bus Driver Who Wanted To Be God and Other Stories, The Nimrod Flipout, The Girl on the Fridge, and Suddenly, a Knock on the Door—you’ll know why he was awarded the Chevalier Medallion of France’s Ordre des Arts et Lettres in 2010.
This video is well done and will make you want to carry more things in your pockets, just in case.
