Waltz with Bashir & the Lebanese people
The Lebanese people, dream of having their own history. To be read, printed, understood and forgot about, and settle the present.
Waltz with Bashir, a documentary describing Lebanon’s brief encounter of war with Israel to curb the Palestinians in Lebanon back in 1982.
Israel itself, well known for its atrocities on Palestinians, director Ari Folman makes us believe that the dealings between Bashir Gemayel and the Government of Israel resulted in the massacre of Palestinians, by the Christians of the Phalanges party, locally known as Kataeb.
Today, in 2009, Israel resides as a minority wrapped around huge metals of warfare and guns to protect itself from enemies it created for it to exist. It’s like the universe eating itself on a smaller scale.
