I saw this video on the Paris Review Daily blog this morning and wanted to share it here. I like the idea of the literary equivalent to a music video (storyvid), and hope to see more of these. This story is from Suddenly, a Knock on the Door by Etgar Keret which I read last year. I thought his stories were funny, fast, and fierce with a wonderfully dark underbelly.

Description:

Author Etgar Keret and journalist and editor Dov Alfon have started a new intiative called storyvid, an attempt to create the literary equivalent of a music video. We bring you storyvid’s first production, a four-minute pilot based on Keret’s story “What Do We Have In Our Pockets?” Goran Dukić of Wristcutters: A Love Story (also based on a Keret story) directs. The short was selected to screen in the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
