I saw the animated sorta-documentary Waltz With Bashir a while ago at the San Francisco Animation Festival. It was amazing, and packed with indelible images; here’s the trailer.
It’s worth seeking out if you’re watching all the horror in Gaza and feeling (again) that need to attend, somehow, to what’s happening.
Lebanon — the subject of Waltz With Bashir — isn’t Gaza, and of course all war in the Middle East isn’t the same, but even so, this movie has a lot to offer, especially right now.
(Um. Take a minute before you read the next post or your brain will explode from the sudden shift in gravity.)
