David Polonsky is the art director and chief illustrator for Waltz With Bashir, written, produced and directed by Ari Folman. A 2008 Golden Globe winner for Best Foreign Language Film, and Academy Award and BAFTA award nominee for Best Foreign Film, this animated documentary from Israel narrates the attempts of Folman, a 1982 Lebanon War veteran, to recover lost memories of the events revolving around the Sabra and Shatila massacre.
David Polonsky will discuss the process of making this film through a presentation with clips and visual explanations of specific techniques that were developed for its design. Q & A session will follow.
This event also celebrates the release of the graphic novel Waltz With Bashir with a book signing after the lecture.
