Waltz With Bashir

A director, i.e. Ari Folman himself, listens to the confession of a friend and former comrade in the Israel–Hezbollah War about a recurring nightmare. Does it have to do with what happened during the war? And why does the director find it impossible to recall anything from that period?

A director, i.e. Ari Folman himself, listens to the confession of a friend and former comrade in the Israel–Hezbollah War about a recurring nightmare. Does it have to do with what happened during the war? And why does the director find it impossible to recall anything from that period?

Talking to people from his past, Folman’s alter ego will reconstruct repressed memories in an unprecedented exploration of the memory of violence and how we manage to suppress it. Just as personal as it is political, and provocative enough to defy the dividing line between documentary and dream-like animation, “Waltz with Bashir” was an undisputed triumph. The film earned Folman international acclaim and a plethora of distinctions that instantly turned it into a future classic. K.S.
