Tel Aviv Stories

The film, Jellyfish, captures the hidden narratives of everyday Tel-Aviv life and draws a vision of the hundred-year old city which is both more seedy and magical than often meets the eye. To mark the publication of the film’s screenplay, Shira Geffen, writer and co-director (along with Etgar Keret) spoke to Linda Grant about the film and untold stories which fill the city.
