Believing in the Muse

Believing in the Muse

For the first time ever, Zeruya Shalev, one of Israel’s most prolific writers, grants a documentary film crew access to her writing process, from concept sketches and character research, to the cover design and print release of her new book. In the course she reflects upon her writing habits, how her personal life and literary characters intertwine, bridging the route between the more intimate writing process and the public spotlight of releasing a book to translation, critics and readers worldwide.
The film is part of “Muses”, a 6-part documentary series about inspiring Israeli cultural figures, a collaboration between the NFCT, the Makor Foundation and Kan 11 – the Israeli Public Broadcaster.
