When: Sunday, October 14, 2018, 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

“Kafka in Palestine” is an imaginative retelling of the friendship between Franz Kafka and his sister Ottla in the early 20th century. They dream of escaping their authoritarian father by moving to the idealized Palestine they have read about in the writings of the Zionist visionary Theodore Herzl. But reality intervenes (Franz’s fatal illness, Ottla’s deportation to the concentration camp) until the siblings are magically reunited in the troubled landscape of the modern era.
