The second film of our film season is the animated movie ‘Waltz with Bashir’. In 1982, in what became known as the Sabra and Shatila massacre, members of the Israeli Defence Force were complicit in the massacre by the Lebanese Phalange militia of between 762 and 3,500 civilians, many of them Palestinians, in a refugee camp in Lebanon. The film is an account of a 19-year old IDF infantry soldier who, because of the horror of being a part of the ring of soldiers who surrounded the camp, is unable to remember anything of the incident.
This spring, the Norwich Amnesty group has lined up an excellent trio of films to be screened at Cinema City as part of our film season.
We’ve selected films that pull no punches about the abuses to human rights that have occurred in the past and remind us that today human rights have never been more threatened.
In order for each of these screenings to go ahead, we need to sell a minimum of 22 tickets per film by ten days before each screening.
So if you’d like to come along to any or all of these films, please be sure to book your tickets as soon as possible.
