The Melbourne Jewish Writers Festival presents Ghita Loebenstein and Tali Lavi as they explore dreams and reality, artistic achievements and disappointments. Oz claims that, as is the way of dreams, once Israel achieved statehood, the dream fulfilled was destined to disappoint. Is A Tale of Love and Darkness a well-executed homage to Oz’s brilliant book or was this passion project too ambitious?
Tali Lavi is a writer, literary reviewer and MJWF committee member. Ghita Loebenstein has undergone many transformations since she has worked in the film industry – from writer, to publicist, to programmer.
