‘Waltz with Bashir’

An animated dance with death

by

Two middle-aged men sit in a bar one rainy night; both are veterans of the Israeli Defense Force’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon, where a “limited incursion” to secure the border turned into a months-long siege of Beirut. One man, Boaz, confesses he’s been haunted by a recurring dream where 26 savage dogs chase after him.
