Trailer Watch: Waltz with Bashir

The trailer for Ari Folman’s animated documentary Waltz with Bashir has been out for a while, apparently, but was just added to Apple‘s movie trailer page, which is the first I’ve heard of it.

Here’s the synopsis:

One night at a bar, an old friend tells director Ari about a recurring nightmare in which he is chased by 26 vicious dogs. Every night the same number of beasts. The two men conclude that there is a connection between the dream and their Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War of the early eighties. Ari is surprised he can’t remember a thing anymore about that period of his life. Intrigued by this riddle, he decides to meet and interview old friends and comrades around the world. He needs to discover the truth about that time and about himself. As Ari delves deeper and deeper into the mystery, his memory begins to creep up in surreal images.

The movie looks very visually innovative, but limited by the undoubtedly tiny budget. Still, it’s an intruiging approach to an interesting subject. Waltz with Bashir hits theaters in New York and LA on December 26, and will hopefully widen next year.

If you’re interested in learning a little more about the film, YouTube has a clip of Folman discussing it on France 24 (from the Cannes Film Festival).
