Israeli film takes the Golden Lion prize at Venice

Just as the Katyushas start to fly again from the neighbor to the north, an Israeli film called "Lebanon" gains international recognition. Like 'Waltz for Bashir,' this examines the 1982 conflict, not the more recent fighting by the sons of the fighters shown here. Director Samuel Maoz shoots almost entirely inside an Israeli tank against the backdrop of the 1982 invasion of Lebanon. The trailer of the film can be seen here.
