Though, the director is visiting Denver to present his 1996 film “Saint Clara,” screening at the Denver Film Center/Colfax at 7:00 p.m. The film centers on a Russian teenager immigrated to a small Israeli town who discovers she has paranormal abilities and how her premonitions of nuclear meltdown wreak havoc. Folman will discuss this award winning film in a Q&A with the audience following the screening.
Thursday, April 19 Denver will be treated to a true gem of Israeli cinema – writer, director and composer Ari Folman. He is perhaps best known here in the U.S. for what is one of the most memorable documentary experiences of this century, “Waltz With Bashir.” The animated documentary recounts the autobiographical search for Folman’s memories of the 1982 Lebanon War.
