Waltz with Bashir
- Tuesday, April 17, 2012 7:00 p.m.
One night, an old friend tells director Ari Folman about a recurring nightmare in which he is chased by 26 vicious dogs. Every night, the same number of beasts. The two men conclude that there’s a connection to their Israeli army mission in the first Lebanon war of the early eighties. Folman realizes he can’t remember anything from that period of his life. He decides to meet and interview old friends and comrades around the world. He needs to discover the truth about that time and about himself. As Folman delves deeper and deeper into the mystery, his memory begins to creep up in surreal images.
