Filmmaker Ari Folman was an Israeli soldier in 1982, when he witnessed a notorious war crime in Beirut, Lebanon. But for more than two decades, he struggled to remember key details about what he saw. In his newest documentary, “Waltz with Bashir,” he interviews his friends and fellow soldiers who also witnessed the incident — and explores how and why we forget. Folman joins Kojo to discuss his story and a controversial chapter in Israeli history.
