Docustream, the month-long DocAviv Festival-sponsored documentary film streaming service, is hosting a webinar conversation on October 28 with author Paul Auster, along with the screening of the film, “Paul Auster: What If.”

The 53-minute film in English, French and German (with Hebrew subtitles) was made in 2018 by Sabine Lidl, and showcases a personal conversation between the filmmaker and Auster, talking about his political views and the fight for a democratic America, as well as his poetic side.

The film followed his latest book at the time, “4321,” which tells the fictionalized story of his own life as a young man of Jewish origin, born in 1947 and living in New Jersey.

Auster’s 7 p.m. conversation on October 28 will be with Ha’aretz reporter Gili Izikovich.

Tickets for the screening and webinar cost NIS 15, or viewers can purchase screening rights to all the Docustream films for NIS 80. The online festival is through October 31 and is only available in Israel.
