Last night, all the stars were out for the 66th annual Golden Globe Awards. Among the winners was the Israeli animated documentary WALTZ WITH BASHIR, which won for best foreign language film. This prestigious award follows closely on the heels of last week’s win for the film as Best Foreign Language Film at the Critic’s Choice Awards. WALTZ WITH BASHIR is part of the ITVS International initiative and received production funding from the organization through its international media development fund.
After its upcoming theatrical distribution through Sony Classic Films, the film will join the slate of more than 70 ITVS International programs ITVS is delivering to U.S. audiences. Directed by Ari Folman, the film looks at the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacre in war-torn Lebanon. One night in September 1982, Christian militia members invaded refugee camps in the heart of Beirut and massacred more than three thousand Palestinians while Israeli soldiers surrounded the area. Ari Folman was one of these soldiers. Congratulations Ari and to all those who worked on the film!
