One night, a friend tells director Ari about a recurring nightmare. They conclude that there’s a connection to their Israeli Army mission in the 1982 Lebanon War. Ari realizes that he can’t remember anything about it and decides to interview his old comrades to discover the truth about that time.
Director Ari Folman won a slew of awards for this humane, heartbreaking, and Oscar®-nominated look at the conflict in the Middle East. Singularly blending animation with documentary, Waltz with Bashir is a mind-bending odyssey through painful memories, with an ending that will leave you speechless.
