Director: Ari Folman
This critically acclaimed animated feature delves into the repressed memory of 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.
The Golden Globe winning, politically charged and endlessly creative film is propelled by a soundtrack featuring some of the best in 80s pop nostalgia.
