The 2010 One Film program period showcases Ari Folman’s animated film Waltz with Bashir (2008), which will be shown at libraries, theaters, and cultural institutions throughout Philadelphia. Additionally, DVD copies of Waltz with Bashir will be available at all Free Library locations. Audiences are encouraged to draw connections between Waltz with Bashir and The Complete Persepolis—the featured selection of the 2010 One Book, One Philadelphia program—as examples of the ways in which animation and graphic art can be used as a powerful medium for the exploration of personal memory.
The Free Library of Philadelphia thanks our media sponsors, MiND Media Indpendence (MiND TV) and Philadelphia Weekly, and our cultural sponsor, the Greater Philadelphia Film Office. We also appreciate the support of our many individual donors and more than 80 community partners. This program is possible only because of their support and dedication.
