Aubrey Cole October 2, 2019 SOFA 131.01 Waltz With Bashir Reflection The Film, Waltz With Bashir , directed by Ari Folman, is an animated documentary about the Israli perspective during the Lebanon Civil War in 1982.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
