Waltz With Bashir

This film is a true story, based upon Folman’s own experiences as a young soldier in the Israel-Lebanon war. What makes it so extraordinary is the way in which he has chosen to present it. The form is interviews with many people involved, but Folman opts to animate over the top of the original footage, making for anonymity for many people, (as requested), but also allowing him to completely immerse in the stuff of dreams, nightmare and memory in a most imaginative and compelling manner.
