  • Waltz with Bashir is an animated documentary written and directed by Israeli film-maker Ari Folman, who based the story on his personal experiences as a young soldier following the aftermath of the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacre in which a Lebanese militia group massacred Palestinian civilians in two Israeli refugee camps. Edit

  • The title reference to "Bashir" is to Bashir Gemayel, president of Lebanon from 23 August 1982 until his assassination two weeks later on 14 September 1982. It was Gemayel's assassination that supposedly prompted the massacre at Sabra and Shatilia. Edit
