Ari Folman debuts his film 'Waltz with Bashir'

Latest update : 2008-05-16

The Israeli director Ari Folman has presented his animated film "Waltz with Bashir" in Cannes. It is expected to leave its mark on the film festival, now in its 61st year.

Israeli director Ari Folman sat down for an exclusive interview with FRANCE 24’s Elizabeth Tchoungui at the Cannes Film Festival. Virtually unknown until recently, now his name is on everyone’s lips.

 

“Waltz with Bashir” is one of the most talked-about films in this year’s Cannes competition. The film is the first of its kind - an animated documentary. Folman brings to the screen his own experiences in the Israeli army 20 years ago, and revisits the 1982 Palestinian refugee massacres in Lebanon.

 

Folman insists the film is not political, and that his aim is to show younger generations that “all wars are pointless.”
