Symphony Space

Etgar Keret, In Film And In Person, At Symphony Space

At one point in “Crazy Glue,” a short film by Elizabeth Orne, a young wife who has been involved in an extramarital affair returns home to find that her husband has crazy glued every movable object in their small apartment. The chairs won’t budge, the receiver will not lift off the phone, the fridge won’t open. When she looks up, she finds that her husband has even glued himself to the ceiling, hanging down, waiting for her to return to him.

Isaiah Sheffer was a raconteur, impresario, pied piper, carnival barker and modern-day vaudvevillian.
