Oscar-Nominated Waltz With Bashir Airs Wednesday on Sundance Channel

Posted on June 28, 2011

The acclaimed ITVS International documentary, written and directed by Ari Folman, delves into the horrors of the 1982 Lebanon War.


Filmmaker Ari Folman's audacious and devastating documentary employs the freedom offered by animation to explore the untrustworthiness of memory, as he reconstructs his experience as an Israeli soldier during the 1982 Lebanon War. Troubled by an inability to vividly recall some of his experience, Folman confers with other veterans to piece together a narrative that is part memory collage, part nightmare, and part history lesson. Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner for Best Foreign Language Film, Waltz with Bashir has its U.S. broadcast premiere on the Sundance Channel this Wednesday, June 29 at 8pm.
