Inspired by actual events, Waltz with Bashir chronicles one man’s descent into his own half-forgotten past. Filmmaker Ari Folman, an Israeli veteran of the First Lebanon War, encounters an old friend suffering from nightmares of the conflict. Ari begins to wonder why his own memories are full of gaps. In an effort to uncover the truth, he reconnects with old friends and dares to confront the horrors of war. Hailed as “innovative” and “devastating,” Waltz with Bashir fuses animation and documentary to create an experience unlike anything you’ve ever witnessed.
