A BBC article from today on the Israeli animated documentary "Waltz with Bashir": Journalist relives nightmares of war
The main focus of the article is the Israeli war journalist Ron Ben-Yishai, the first journalist to enter the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps after the massacres in September 1982. He has a small, but important role. He did not want to take part in the documentary at first, but was later convinced by director Ari Folman.
From the article:
"Inhibition - the ability to inhibit, is a very powerful defence mechanism," says Ben-Yishai.
"You see horrible things, you inhibit, you store it somewhere. I believe if it doesn't come back and if you don't work it out early - it is there and it might explode."
The Independent also had an article on the movie a couple of weeks ago:
This article by Ben Lynfield is much more informative than the one from BBC. Lynfield reports from Jerusalem and he focus mpore on the different Israeli reactions and reviews. A good article worth reading if you are interested in both the Lebanon war and movie itself.
