From the Maker of 'Waltz With Bashir' Comes 'The Congress'

Ari Folman, who stunned audiences with his animated documentary about Israel's First Lebanon War, will soon release a new film based on a novel by Polish sci-fi writer Stanislaw Lem.

A Facebook survey asked me: “What is the film to which you are most looking forward in 2013?” Without a moment’s hesitation I replied: Ari Folman’s “The Congress,” even though it wasn’t even one of the possibilities.
