Of late, animation has gone beyond kid stuff to
historical tragedy. Witness Ari Folman's Waltz With Bashir (2008), a nightmarish, autobiographical
memoir of the 1980s invasion of Lebanon
from the point of view of a green Israeli soldier. The first film in the MFA's
"Hollywood Scriptures" series, it's followed by a panel discussion with Steven
Nisenbaum of the Harvard Medical School and Rina Folman, a psychologist at
UMass Memorial Health Alliance.
