Waltz with Bashir wins!

Waltz with Bashir, Ari Folman’s animated documentary about the 1982 war in Lebanon, won the Golden Globe for best Best Foreign Language Film! I still have to see this film, very excited to see Asaf Hanuka’s illustrations animated.

    hey there, I must correct you about the illustrator of the film, It’s true that Asaf Hanuka was part of the illustrators of the film, BUT the illustration were made by David Polonsky and he recruit Asaf to the project because of his quality and his style.

    what i said originally was i am excited to see Asaf’s illustrations animated – i realise he was only one of many illustrators and he wasn’t an animator, i just like his style and was excited to see his work animated. thanks for the additional info though.
