Saturday Afternoon at the Movies – Waltz with Bashir (2008)

Saturday, July 17, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Members & guests–$3.99 on Amazon Prime and other streaming services. To RSVP, please scroll down. The day before the discussion, a confirmation email will be sent to registered attendees with a link to join via Zoom.

Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! Israeli filmmaker Ari Folman wrote and directed this autobiographical animated film. Folman knows that, as a young Israeli soldier during the 1982 war with Lebanon, he witnessed a massacre of refugees, yet he has no memory of the event. In 2006, he seeks out others who were in Beirut at the time to discuss their memories. The film premiered at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, won a Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Village member Mel Washburn will host a discussion of the film via Zoom this Saturday at 3:00 PM.
