March 22 – Rebel Films Presents: Waltz with Bashir (2009)

*Waltz with Bashir* is an award winning animated documentary drama about the 1982 extermination of hundreds of Palestinian civilians at Sabra and Chatila in Lebanon. The brutal massacre was conducted by the Christian fascist “Falange,” with the aid of Israeli troops. The story of the genocide is told through the eyes of Israeli soldiers, one of whom is the director. Their tortured dreams make this a truly unique and powerful film. Actual footage taken in the aftermath of the slaughter further dramatizes the horror. This film was released as Israeli attacks on Gaza resumed in 2009, generating praise for the film but also criticism from the Right and the Left. Join us as we watch and then discuss the powerful *Waltz with Bashir.* For information: Socialist Action – spewnyc@aol.com
