The critically acclaimed animated feature 'Waltz with Bashir' delves into the repressed memory of director Ari Folman during his time in the Israeli Army fighting in the Lebanon War.
Our collective amnesia of Folman's real life horror is gradually exposed, through graphic novel-esque animation, to reveal a deeply personal and at times harrowing portrait of the futility of war. Beginning with the riddle of his memory loss and recurring nightmares, Ari interviews his original comrades in a quest to piece together his latent traumatic past.
Propelled by a soundtrack featuring some of the best in 80s pop nostalgia.
