Almost 30 years after the event, the massacre at Sabra and Shatila within the Lebanon War of 1982 remains a chilling memory to the inhumanity and abuse of military power over the lives and deaths of ordinary people.

The damage to both victim and victimizer is captured admirably by the animated documentary film, Waltz with Bashir. Released in 2008, it is written and directed by Ari Folman who took part as a soldier in the Lebanon War.
